Got-IT survey & workshops: Looking for eHealth developers and designers

User-centric design has a proven track-record. Yet patient involvement in healthcare - and in development of digital tools too - can sometimes be elusive. Especially if your users start out with a low digital literacy.

The goal here is not simply to educate the users to understand. Nor discourage developers from a tiring, confusing process of adaption without a validated process. But to bridge the needs of developers to find good, practical solutions for technical solutions and the needs for users to simply have great tools, designed for usability and effect.

A new guideline?
The AAL Got-IT project aims to build a guideline for developers on user involvement, allowing developers to outline and streamline the user involvement phase, but also strengthen the documentation of the user feedback and fitness for purpose. The end goal is to help digital developers to get a better market uptake and less transactional, administrative burdens - while also increasing the efficacy and satisfaction from end-users too.

We therefore hope you will share your views on and experiences with user involvement, when developing tools for users with low digital literacy.


Via a questionnaire, we would like to assess how eHealth develoeprs currently deal with the issue of low eHealth literacy. For this survey, we are looking for eHealth developers and desginers. Completing this survey will take approximately 15 minutes. After the analyses of results, we will distribute a free overview of the results on our social media channels (LinkedIn, Twitter) and here on our website.

Please find the link to the survey here:

Workshops During the development of the Got-IT toolkit, we will work together in co-creation sessions with our end-users: developers and designers of eHealth applications. Therefor, we are looking for participants. If you are interested in getting involved, please reach out to us via


Project kick-off and website online

Welcome to the website of the AAL small collaborative project Got-IT! 

The project website is now online: you can find more information about the project, the consortium and how to contact us. 

During the project we will work towards an online toolkit to assist the design of inclusive eHealth solutions for older adults with low eHealth literacy. The toolkit will be made available on this website. 

The Got-IT project kicked of on April 6th with an online meeting, due to the current covid-19 restrictions. 

In total 15 collegues from the 5 different project partners were present (Roessingh Research and Development (RRD, NL), PHAROS (NL), TU Wien (AU), Johanniter ├ľsterreich Ausbildung und Forschung gemeinn├╝tzige GmbH (JOAFG, AU) and Danish Committee for Health Education (DCHE, Denmark) 

The day started with a welcome, introductory round of the project partners and of the project outline. Furthermore a first workplan for each workpackage was presented.  

Currently, we already created a first low-fidelity prototype of the toolkit and the first co-creation sessions with end-users took place as well. 

Please stay tuned, more information will follow soon!
