BACKGROUND Despite a large number of clinical trials aiming at evaluating the usage of digital technology for the self-management of chronic diseases, there is little discussion about the user experience when using this technology. Not surprisingly, evaluations focus on the primary outcomes, i.e., the health outcomes. A good user experience is howe...
Article
Background: Despite a large number of clinical trials aiming at evaluating the digital self-management of chronic diseases, there is little discussion about users' experiences with digital approaches. However, a good user experience is a critical factor for technology adoption. Understanding users' experiences can inform the design of approaches t...

Gamification, i.e. applying game elements in non-game contexts, is been increasingly used for designing systems and application elements to foster user engagement, enjoyment and support behavior change. Experts agree that, to be efficient, gamification strategies should be designed in a user-centric fashion. However, current user-centered design ap...

Governments in the western countries are faced with a number of growing social challenges, such as unemployment, migration, ageing population, explosion of chronic disease. Although they offer a wide range of public social services, we cannot assume that the economy will grow at a rate that can fund expanding needs for services risen by these chall...

POS-print available at: https://www.tvilarinho.com/ Self-management has the potential to improve patient care and decrease healthcare costs. It is especially beneficial for patients suffering from chronic diseases that require continuous therapy and followup such as cystic fibrosis (CF). Mobile phones have become pervasive and, therefore, are perf...

Mobile health applications are proliferating. Platform vendors have recently created programming toolkits to support developers. In many healthcare scenarios, mobile health applications are only the end-point of a larger supervised service involving many stakeholders. We want to know how these toolkits support the delivery of such services. Using a...

Call centers are a central coordination hub for remote health services and telemedicine. Recently, also telecare providers use call centers to support the remote care of seniors living independently. Although we know that the quality of the interaction between caregiver and senior care recipient is important, there is a gap in our knowledge as to h...
Conference Paper
For many years, we’ve been growing the number and variety of innovation-related buzzwords by simply attaching different adjectives/attributes to such a keyword within Economics, and Engineering. Social Innovation (SI) and its associated conceptual framework are in its infancy. There are a lot of on-going efforts focused on its theoretical developme...

—The environmental impacts of the usage of fossil fuels together with its limited supply has been pushing governments, industries and people to seek cleaner and renewable energy supplies and to adopt energy habits leading to a greater sustainability. While acquiring a Photo Voltaic solar panel (PV) is a big step in that direction, much can also be...

Although things in the Internet of Things contain considerable amounts of software, developers of such software have no standardized means of maintaining, improving and sharing this software as they can do, e.g., with applications on a smart phone. This limitation can hamper user-driven innovation. In this paper we evaluate the usefulness of the “a...

Falls are behind many elderly hospitalizations and can lead to injuries that greatly debilitate old patients. Much of the deployed fall detection systems rely on the user wearing a personal emergency response device, being conscious and at home. The limitations of the existing systems regarding usability and efficiency have yield an overarching res...

This paper provides an empirical understanding of concerns that the application of a sensor-enhanced medical alert system, or personal emergency response (PER) system, raises from the perspective of care receivers (users) and care providers. Data were gathered in the context of a field trial of a PER system supporting both user-initiated alerts and...

Building reliable software services based on service components supplied by partners and third parties in potentially complex chains of providers, is inherently challenging. In the case of cloud-based services, providers may offer not only software (web services) but also infrastructure (e.g., processing and storage). Making composite services trus...

Collaborative AmI technologies have the potential to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of rescuers during crisis response work. However, few AmI technologies are designed specifically for such scenarios. Our findings from a number of case studies have resulted in a set of requirements. In this paper we present some of these findings. We the...

Social networks connect people while internet of things platforms connect things. Although both platforms use various communication tools in efficient ways, platforms for things often don't communicate and interoperate with social networks. As a consequence, there is a lack of unified programming interfaces and platforms to enable internet-based in...

Social networks proliferate daily life, many are part of big groups within social networks, many of these groups contain people unknown to you, but with whom you share interests. Some of these shared interest are based on context which has real-time properties (e.g. Who would like to go to a jazz concert during an AI conference). This paper present...
