Accessing patients' data at the point of care has the potential to ease the workflow of nurses and to improve the documentation. We have launched an initiative to develop a mobile assistant focused on managing nurses' daily intervention. The design has required the involvement of many stakeholder and has followed a user centered design process. The evaluation is planned in two stages with an increasing level of ecology. The solution is a client server application displaying a contextualized view on nurses' interventions. It allows to validate and comment each intervention presented as an item in a list. Deploying mobile client applications in healthcare is a challenging task not only from a technical point of view but also regarding organizational factors and human factors.
