Users’ expectation were then validated with the stakeholder’s goals. The results showed that there was a contradiction of goals and need among team members and medical practitioners. The findings provide a literature on a case study of an industry practice and a useful methods to be applied to capture hidden needs and requirements when designing a healthcare products.
