A new generation of patient-driven healthcare information systems (HIS) is emerging to advance traditional healthcare services and empower patient self-responsibility. Professional approaches to develop or improve HIS exist alongside evolving individual and community-shared approaches where patients take responsibility for their health data and health. Health Social Networks and the Quantified Self community are examples for such patient-driven initiatives. They inherently focus on empowering… Expand
Motivations to use health-related self-tracking apps
Recently, health-related self-tracking apps have become increasingly popular. Users of these apps track behaviors such as physical activities, eating behavior or their mood. Existing research aboutExpand
Health experience model of personal informatics: The case of a quantified self
TLDR
The results of this user model confirm the significant role of utility and hedonicity regarding their underlying link to confirmation, satisfaction, and continuance intention and establish a foundation for future wearable technologies through a heuristic quality assessment tool from a user-centered perspective. Expand
Refining the Concepts of Self-quantification Needed for Health Self-management. A Thematic Literature Review.
BACKGROUND Questions like 'How is your health? How are you feeling? How have you been?' now can be answered in a different way due to innovative health self-quantification apps and devices. TheseExpand
Behavior change through wearables: the interplay between self-leadership and IT-based leadership
Physical inactivity is a global public health problem that poses health risks to individuals and imposes financial burdens on already strained healthcare systems. Wearables that promote regularExpand
Measuring commitment to self-tracking: development of the C2ST scale
TLDR
The development and first validation of a new 12-item behavior-based scale for its measurement, the Commitment to Self-Tracking (C2ST) scale is presented and an analysis of the survey data indicates that commitment to self-tracking positively correlates with autonomous motivation for tracking and negatively correlates with controlled motivation. Expand
How reliable are self-assessments using mobile technology in healthcare? The effects of technology identity and self-efficacy
TLDR
It is theorized that perceived mobile technology identity directly affects self-report reliability, and perceived self-efficacy moderates the relationship between the two, and that academic education affects the reliability of self-reports. Expand
Does your health really benefit from using a self-tracking device? Evidence from a longitudinal randomized control trial
TLDR
The results suggest that wearing the fitness tracker had a statistically small but significant positive effect on users' perceived physical health and their sense of accomplishment, while health consciousness increased with a large effect size for all participants in the study. Expand
Identifying Quality Factors for Self-Tracking Solutions: A Systematic Literature Review
TLDR
This work uses a systematic literature review based on a research protocol to identify and analyze 98 quality-influencing factors from 19 studies that are cluster in a map and shows that certain factors like hedonic motivation are unconsidered thoroughly in the existing standard. Expand
Health Promotion for Childhood Obesity: An Approach Based on Self-Tracking of Data
TLDR
The quantified-self model and its data sources, the activity recommender system, and the PROVITAO App user experience model are described and the results of a gamified program applied for three years in children with obesity are presented. Expand
Quantify-me: Consumer Acceptance of Wearable Self-tracking Devices
TLDR
This study deductively develops an acceptance model for wearable self-tracking technologies which sheds light on the pre-adoption criteria of such devices, and identifies perceived usefulness, perceived enjoyment, social influence, trust, personal innovativeness, and perceived support of well-being as the strongest drivers for the intention to use wearableSelf- tracking technologies.
