Usability Study of a Tool for Patients’ Access Control to Their Health Data

Abstract

Considering the need that is expected for the institutions to be compliant with the new legislation we intended to create a tool (MyRegister) that will allow patients to know which professionals accessed their health data in healthcare institutions where they have had previous contact. Before development we decided to create a functional prototype to validate the user interface of the tool with real users. We created an evaluation instrument consisting of 4 tasks and a SUS questionnaire that allowed us to evaluate the MyRegister interface of the prototype by the participants. The results of the evaluation of the prototype allowed us to identify some of the major usability problems of the interface, while the SUS score of 79.5 in 100 is a result that shows good usability. Regarding the performed tasks, all were completed by the participants but not all of them answered correctly to the questions asked. After correcting the problems found and implementing the suggestions of the participants that we consider permissible to include, we intend to continue this project with the development of the tool and test its usability as well as user experience in real environments with a wider and more heterogeneous sample.
