Abstract [en]

A significant problem with current health information technologies is that they poorly support collaborative work of healthcare professionals, sometimes leading to a fragmentation of workflow and disruption of healthcare processes. Objective: This paper presents two homecare cases, both applying multi-disciplinary thematic seminars (MdTS) as a collaborative method for user needs elicitation and requirements specification. Methods: This study describes the MdTS application to elicit user needs from different perspectives to coincide with collaborative professions' work practices in two cases. Results: Despite different objectives, the two cases validated that MdTS emphasized the "points of intersection" in cooperative work. Different user groups with similar, yet distinct needs reached a common understanding of the entire work process, agreed upon requirements and participated in the design of prototypes supporting cooperative work. Conclusion: MdTS was applicable in both exploratory and normative studies aiming to elicit the specific requirements in a cooperative environment.
