From Sept. 4th to Nov. 18th (2017), the field tests of LetItFlow project were carried out. They took place in Romania and Spain, inside of both hospitals – the University Emergency Hospital Bucharest (UHB) and the University Hospital Virgen Macarena of Seville (HUVM). The aim of the tests was to evaluate and validate the solution in a real environment, involving employees working as a technician at the Biochemistry Laboratory or as a nurse inside the Neurology or Internal Medicine Departments.

In May 2017, the second end-user workshop was held in Austria by project partner AIT Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH. This workshop focused on co-designing a wearable device for the hospital environment and gathering feedback on the smartwatch app that was developed further based on the feedback from the first workshop. The five participants with a background in nursing first received a short introduction about the project, which was followed by a presentation of the smartwatch app. After trying out and discussing the features (send an alarm, receive an alarm and get task based workflow support), the participants were invited to build a wearable device that they would like to use in your daily work routine. They were further asked to consider the three core requirements for the smartwatch in their design: adherence to hospital hygiene policies, usefulness in daily work, clarity and ease of use of the alarms features.
Last 22th-24th May 2017 took place in Seville the seventh internal project meeting along with the second session of AAL2Business, hosted by Integrasys and HUVM.
