Persona Library
A persona is a representation of a real enduser that helps healthcare IT developers to create, empathize, and bring a user’s perspective to all aspects of design. EHRA members, with the help of provider association partners, have developed 11 persona templates. EHRA encourages organizations to use these freely available personas as a resource in their own design and development work cycle.
