Usability is the effectiveness, efficiency and satisfaction with which specific users can achieve a specific set of tasks in a particular environment [Schoeffel R. The concept of product usability. ISO Bulletin. 2003;34:6‐7]. Section 508 of Title V of the Rehabilitation Act seeks to ensure accessibility of electronic and information technology to people with disabilities. Traditionally, consumer mobile devices and solutions have strong usability, human factors, accessibility and design focus in order to differentiate themselves competitively in the market. As these devices are augmented and adopted for use in health care they provide great opportunities for improved workflow, communication, accessibility, end user efficiencies and effectiveness as well as user satisfaction.
