Abstract: In this position paper we ask the question of whether current medical software systems adequately support the “dumb users” in their routine work, or whether the software systems are rather function-oriented and their development far removed from reality. In a multi-year study, the medical faculty of the University of Heidelberg and the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) cooperated on a review of the current situation in medical software systems. The first project involved the joint development of a prototype of a user-centered software system for the allogeneic stem cell transplantation procedure. Additionally, a comprehensive survey was conducted among the medical staff of the Hematology and Oncology Department at the Heidelberg University Clinic. The results of both the project and the survey are presented here.
