Recommendations included in the guide are either general guidance for designers and design teams that can be applied to the process of designing and developing a product; or specific to a design phase such as idea generation, identification of end users, testing and commercialization. The guide presents results of an environmental scan and grey literature review (PDF, 1.47 MB); as well as expert interviews (PDF, 987 KB) to improve consumer health IT design in order to increase effective use of consumer health IT.
