Abstract:BACKGROUND: Over the last decade, an increase in workload towards the health care provider took place. Yet, evidence is growing that information systems perform poorly and are often not achievable. METHOD: The aim of this study is to advance the usability of a health information system, by creating more efficiency, to enhance the motivation and productivity of the podiatrists in the health system with the use of an eHealth technology. The first three stages of the CeHRes roadmap are covered in this study. RESULTS: a low-fi prototype has been developed. The low-fi prototype of the PodoGroup software, consists of three components, the agenda overview, patient card and the personal environment. CONCLUSION: The results of the user evaluation indicate that the healthcare professionals have a positive attitude towards the first concept. The target users have the intention to use the system if the mentioned recommendations are being added. The main problems of the current system are the uncompleted information in patient cards and the content of entering data. Those are solved in the new design by creating fewer tabs, tracking the execution of the user, linking data as diagnoses and through creating support by searching for appointments in the agenda. Implementation of the PodoGroup software in other organisations, is leading if the work processes are adapted conform the set-up of the system.
