We present the early steps in a design process within the cross-disciplinary MIME project (Managing Information in Medical Emergencies). The project aims to develop a mobile medical monitoring system for rural pre-hospital scenarios in which the first person on-scene is typically a volunteer with only basic first-aid training. The goal is to allow the recording of physiological data and the accurate logging of observations and actions by these volunteers, and to automate the process of delivering a handover report to arriving ambulance teams. Pragmatic requirements were gathered through surveys and focus groups with medical experts and several prototypes were designed and evaluated.
