Fifteen participants were occupational therapists, who worked as care managers in the community. The research instrument was a questionnaire that comprised 22 items in 4 aspects including requirement, function, usability and security. The HI system in this study comprised 6 parts such as log in, data display and summary, history, assessment, intervention and follow-up. Efficiency of the HI system was at the good level from the perspective of users (4.30±0.58).
