Abstract [en]

The area of homecare is not normally associated with the use of Information and CommunicationTechnology (ICT). Today ICT and mobile ICT are being implemented within homecare practice to makethe job of caring more effective and attractive. This chapter focuses attention on the human aspectswhen an automatic planning system and a handheld computer were implemented in a homecare practice.The aim of the chapter is to explore care workers’ experiences of how these technologies supported andfacilitated their day-to-day work, but also how they affect daily work in practice. The authors’ findingsindicate that some of the wants and needs for ICT of the homecare team regarding their work practicewere met. The integration of principles from Participatory Action Research (PAR) in the ParticipatoryDesign (PD) process made it possible for staff to participate during the full development process, takepart in the design process and make decisions during the whole trial.
