A mobile healthcare system consists of a number of components networked together including patients and their healthcare providers. It is important in this type of system for the patient to remain connected at all times even if one of the communication components fails. This paper discusses the design of the MediNet system and shows how it seamlessly handles connectivity issues between patients and their mobile phones, between the healthcare meters and mobile phones, and between mobile phones and web server components. The overall goal behind our design strategies is to continue providing a high level of service to the patient in the face of communication problems leading to improved acceptability and trust of the system by patients.
One of the main objectives of our research with MediNet was to design a system that would give the user a feeling of connectedness. Connectedness is viewed from two different perspectives in this paper.
The first perspective defines it as being logically, coherently or intelligibly ordered or presented. In order to achieve logical connectedness, the system's us- ability was addressed: the usability of the meters, the usability of the patient interface and the usability of the healthcare providers and care- givers interface. The assumption here is that if the user has this feeling of connectedness, he or she will trust the system and use it again.
The second perspective is from a technical standpoint where connectedness is defined as the state of being connected, where a connection is a relation between two things and events.
