Abstract

This paper presents the early phase requirements elicitation for a work-related neck-shoulder pain teletreatment trial and the assessment of those requirements in respect of their importance to the trial and the feasibility of the needed software adaptations of the telemedicine system within the constraints of the project organizing the trial. The elicitation adopts specific solutions and constraints that are typical for working practices in medicine. In particular, the contribution of this paper is its holistic approach in addressing the intertwining of the requirements elicitation and the trial design. Trial design defines the trial settings and the treatment protocols in a standardized way such that treatment efficacy can be evaluated based on evidence. A cyclic approach which applies a set of elicitation techniques and informal specification styles (e.g. tables and mock-ups) is adopted in order to converge on a set of requirements understood and agreed upon also by the trial designers, who are medical professionals, often unaware of formal methods, and who co-shape the telemedicine system.
