Abstract: Stress and heavy workloads are commonplace for those who work within Swedish healthcare; the issue is exacerbated further by the current shortage of qualified personnel. Therein arises a need for tools to help lessen the burden on the personnel. This report presents a prototype of a web application made for daily staff scheduling, tailored to the needs of the pediatric surgery department at Uppsala University Hospital. The aim of the project was to deliver a more flexible digital solution of daily staff coordination at the department. Two fundamentals of the application were that it should be easy to use and display informationclearly with few misunderstandings. The resulting prototype met the usability requirement, other than a few specific usability issues, and improved upon the readability of the contents displayed in comparison to the previous system. To further improve the system, work could be done to increase the efficiency with which tasks can be performed.
