This paper will discuss the Omaha System, a conceptual framework in home healthcare , that designates four domains. Using universal design, user studies, and semantic analysis methods, we are developing icons for the 42 concepts in the system. The use of color and form to communicate is of prime importance. Prototypes of the icons will be presented and discussed.
