Abstract(s)The usability of information systems in critical environments like Intensive Care Units (ICU) is far than the expected and desirable. Typically, ICUs have a set of not integrated information silos and a high number of data recorded in paper. Whenever ICU professionals need to make a decision they have to deal with a high number of data sources containing useful information. Unfortunately, they can't use those sources due to the difficulty of evaluating them in a correct time. Pervasive Intelligent Decision Support Systems (PIDSS), operating automatically and in real-time, can be used to improve the decision making if they are suited to the requirements of the ICU. In this work a PIDSS have been assessed in terms of quality and user acceptance making use of Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). TAM proved to be very useful when combined with Delphi method features to involve the professionals and to make the system usable.
