In rural regions of Germany, the demographic change is complemented by an impending doctor's shortage affecting the healthcare of the population negatively. To counter this trend a new healthcare professional – named agneszwei nurse– was introduced. Giving a brief introduction to these new professionals, this work presents the agneszwei app: A mobile electronic patient record system that has been developed as working appliance specifically for the agneszwei nurses. Here, we want to emphasize the advantages developing such ICT-support following a flexible user-centred process presenting the results of a three month field test with six participants.
