Abstract

Designing a Web system for elderly patients requires attention to the users' functional impairments and inexperience with computers. The authors reviewed published guidelines for the design of Web-based clinical systems for elderly patients and identified additional design considerations that have not been reported in the literature. The resulting recommendations are related to the system interface, the training and support of users, and the content of Web pages. The recommendations can be used as design objectives for Web-based systems for elderly patients, which emphasize system usability and aim to optimize patients' error-free use of these systems.
