Abstract: Full adoption of Information Technologies in the healthcare domain is a reality. New paradigms as mobile computing can support a big amount of healthcare needs. The aim of this research work is to present the application of good practices in the design of healthcare information technology following a methodological approach for apps in mobile environments involving fictitious users based on knowledge of real users in the app design. Real users’ needs have been extracted from empirical researches, guidelines and standards, favoring an outstanding role to users. In order to illustrate the approach and provide a resource to designers, a case study showing how to obtain an accessible design is introduced. The mobile app considered supports a Personal Health Record and self testing for anticoagulated patients who are often elderly. The access characteristics of the elderly and their possible disabilities are essential aspects to keep in mind in the design of a mobile user interface. To ad dress users’ needs on the healthcare mobile applications it has been concluded that the requirement elicitation must take into account functional requirements concerning aspects that characterize a disease, and accessibility requirements related to special needs of patients suffering a disease.
