A highly visual practice, dermatology as a field has significant potential to use emerging technology such as mobile applications for research and patient-centered mapping of the disease process. The UCSF team is working to create SkinTracker, a mobile application for patients with skin disease to remotely participate in clinical trials and research studies. The initial iteration of the application focuses on atopic dermatitis. The application includes an enrollment and consent module, validated surveys including the Patient Oriented Eczema Measure (POEM), Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI), Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) for itch, link to a wearable device that collects biometric data, a voice diary, and a patient-directed photography module to facilitate physician evaluation of disease. Also included is the ability to report medication use, adverse events, and the ability to chat with the study team. The patient information is available to the research team on a secure online website, where researchers can assess patient photographs to perform Eczema Area and Severity Index (EASI) scoring, note important patient observations from the voice diary, and view quantitative data from both patient surveys and health measures like physical activity, sleep, and environmental factors. We believe this application and website will facilitate patient interest and participation in research, continue research despite in-person restrictions placed during the COVID-19 pandemic, and allow enrollment of more diverse patients for clinical studies who would otherwise be less likely to participate in research due to time or financial constraints.

Purpose - This study aims to empirically examine accounting information system (AIS) success at the organizational level during COVID-19 era. Design/methodology/approach - Based on the information system success model, this paper developed its model and proposed a total of nine hypotheses. This paper gathered the required data via a questionnaire from Yemeni small and medium enterprises (SMEs) owners and managers. To test the proposed research model paths, SmartPLS software, which is known as partial least squares structural equation modeling, was used. Findings - The results showed that the quality dimensions (information quality and system quality) positively affected the use of MS and satisfaction;user satisfaction positively affected the use of AIS. Management support positively affected the AIS users' usage and satisfaction. Finally, the use dimensions (user satisfaction and usage) positively impacted the net benefits in terms of gaining a competitive advantage, productivity enhancement and saving time and cost. In all, this research has succeeded in providing support for DeLone and McLean's IS success model at the organizational level during the COVID-19 era. Practical implications - AIS is becoming increasingly important for SMEs in low-income countries like Yemen, particularly in the present pandemic conditions (COVID-19 era). By using AIS, users can access the enterprise's data and conduct transactions without being limited by distance. Indeed, AIS proved its ability in enhancing the net benefits at the organizational level in the COVID-19 era in terms of gaining a competitive advantage, productivity enhancement and saving time and cost. However, AIS can only be considered useful to the enterprise if it is effective/successful. Originality/value - This study is one of the first to have assessed the impact of AIS success at the organizational level in the era of COVID-19 pandemic, the context of Yemeni SMEs.
