The MANTRA (Mobile for ANticoagulant TheRApy) project is aimed at introducing mobile devices and innovative interaction design in anticoagulant therapy practice to improve the quality of life of patients and to support doctor-patient communication. This would have the benefit of saving both patient and healthcare workers time and resources and facilitate the monitoring of this therapy. The project is an ongoing usability study and proof of concept and this paper presents the results of a heuristic analysis performed to identify the potentials of this research.
