Application of Persuasive Techniques in the design of mobile eHealth Systems

In this conference paper, entitled ‘Application of Persuasive Techniques in the design of mobile eHealth Systems’, the authors Anandhi Vivekanandan Dhukaram, Laurie Parma, Alex Kogan, examine the growing number of mobile applications which are being developed as Personalized eHealth systems to support user’s wellbeing, change attitudes and/ behaviour.

Using the PSD Model (Oinas-Kukkonen and Harjumaa 2009) and human computer interaction features (Dix 2009), the design of seven mobile apps that are currently popular in the iPhone and Google app stores for well-being and happiness are analysed by 4 researchers in the field of psychology and human computer interaction.

This conference paper, which introduces the results and conclusions, was produced for the Global Summit on Telemedicine & eHealth, held 17-18 August 2015 in Houston, Texas, USA.

This is an output from a project supported by the CCI Collaborative Fund for Conservation.
