Abstract: In many hospitals, the workflow involved in transporting patients is supported by interactive work lists on desktop computers that provide the status of a work order and detailed information on request. However, the nurses, who organize and conduct the transportation, need to go to the desktop in order to update the work list status; which has been found very time consuming. In this paper we report on the development of a mobile solution prototype that provides interactive transport work lists on a PDA and we discuss some design and implementation issues. Despite the limited screen size, end-users were able to use the PDA with no more problems than their usual desktop user interface as the PDA user interface can be customized with property files to fit exactly the requirements of the end-users in the hospital.
