Abstract

The demands of introducing a more practical means of managing and monitoring technology within the home environment to support independent living are increasing. Within this paper we present a prototype solution, referred to as HomeCI, which allows healthcare professionals to establish the conditions/rules within which technology in the home should operate. The HomeCI concept is based on the use of visual notation and has been designed for use by healthcare professionals with a non technical background. Within the paper we present the design of the first version of the HomeCI visual editor and present the results of a usability study conducted on 4 healthcare professionals.
