Clinical assessment scales for specific medical subareas include domain knowledge that may not be of general awareness among practitioners, hindering the adoption of best practices. In this context, we propose a pocket guide for comprehensive geriatric assessment as a mobile application. The GeriatricHelper is an Android mHealth application developed under an iterative, User-Centered Design approach. Feedback from a broad set of users including domain experts has been obtained throughout and a functional prototype is currently being tested in a Portuguese hospital, allowing for any clinician to apply the otherwise experts-limited geriatric assessment.
