A systems modelling approach has been adopted to identify and characterise the processes involved in home telecare monitoring. Extending this approach with the analysis of decisions and reasoning of potential users, in conjunction with laboratory studies comprising task analysis using case scenarios is sufficient to specify information requirements necessary to insure functions for which the system was intended. A case study in which this method is applied to the design and evaluation of a web-based monitoring system for cystic fibrosis is presented.
