Abstract

Within the medical domain, paper based and electronic approaches are the two main methods of collecting and sharing various types of medical information. Through the continual development of technology, healthcare services and industries are engaging more and more with online resources in an effort to become part of the digital age. This paper presents a study involving 26 participants who were familiar in using the paper based Barthel Index assessment for the assessment of Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). The experiment conducted considered the subjects completing the assessment using both a digital variant of the assessment technique deployed through the World Wide Web, in addition to a traditional paper based version. Results from post-evaluation assessment indicated that 22 participants found that the digital variant of the ADL assessment tool was more effective than, if not the same, as the test if it where conducted on paper.
