Abstract:The importance of self-care management was increasing, posting more responsibility to patients, especially for older adults. Successful self-health management often included taking medication as prescribed with good medication regimen. Taking medication as prescribed requires developing medication plans and prospective memory to execute the plan accordingly. This process would especially post challenges to older adults, who typically took multiple medications because of age-related cognitive declines and inadequate collaboration and communication with providers. The e-MedTable provided a common ground to assist patient-provider collaborative planning by integrating patient’s daily routine and medication information on the tool. The validity and usability of e-Medtable was also tested in previous researches. The authors used the tool e-MedTable to investigate simulated patient and providers’ problem solving strategies to solve medication scheduling tasks. The first experiment explored users’ interface interactions with e-MedTable by mouse click data. Four medications were presented on the tool from the top to bottom. The results revealed that two thirds of pairs followed the order on the tool from the top to the bottom and one third of pairs used alternative orders to solve the problem.
