The trend of developing ubiquitous e-health services poses new demands on information systems development (ISD) methods and approaches. An alternative, activity driven approach has been developed in Finland for investigating the information needs of health workers as the first phase of ISD activities. Activity Driven Needs Analysis (ADNA) was applied to the case of Maternity Pathway in Pudong in Shanghai, China. In this paper we present the experiences of applying Activity Driven Needs Analysis and discuss the applicability of the approach in a distinctive context different from where it was first developed. The results contribute to the adjustment of methods to local and situational conditions.
