Health sector face different clinical-oriented tasks using different methods to take care of the patients faced with different health conditions. Rapid growth of technology usage has resulted in web interfaces designs to monitor cancer patients symptoms in order to improve their quality of life.

This project aimed : to encourage clinicians to enhance the quality of life in cancer patients through the use of technology (ASyMS), to enhance in the understanding of the usage of the eSMART/ASyMS interface by clinicians, to allow successful technology communication between clinicians and cancer patients in future.

This project conducted a two phase qualitative research using Think- Aloud and thematic analysis method. This project used video and audio recorded to observe clinicians in using the original and the prototype designed eSMART interface.

Overall, clinicians perceived as the eSMART web-based interface as highly usefull in monitoring cancer patients symptom and improve their quality of life. The recommendation of this study suggested for clinicians, patients and all stakeholders to be included in the actual design and implementation of the eSMART interface
