Handheld computerised data-collection tools have been shown to be snore accurate, less susceptible to recall errors and to encourage higher user-compliance than pen and paper alternatives. Pocket Interview is a configurable electronic diary and data collection tool that provides the ability to design and deliver questionnaires and collect data securely using handheld devices and desktop computers. The client software can be set to prompt the data contributor, via audible prompts, to provide entries at fixed times and preset intervals. The device also allows the users to record personally significant incidents out with the schedule times. Pocket Interview is designed for use, after minimal training, by both the data-provider(s) and the administrator. An administrator can define and/or amend the data they would like to be collected, via a graphical user interface. The system has been shown to be usable by both administrators and users.
