Testing user-tailored e-health services in practice: results and lessons learned

Abstract

This paper evaluates a patient self-management system that provides user-tailored e-health services. The system provides a set of health related services (e.g. vital sign monitoring, medication support) to elderly people. These services stem from different vendors and technological origins, yet they can be integrated and tailored to individual care needs. This paper describes the results of an evaluation of the system in a nursing home. Eight clients and 4 nurses of a nursing home tested the system in a pilot study between May and November, 2012. Results show that is possible to create a platform that enables patient-specific care. The platform provides useful applications in care. These applications can save time for caregivers, and increase self-management in patients. However, it requires investment in the learning process. The work shows that this platform successfully integrates and tailors heterogeneous sensors, actuators and services from different vendors and technological origins. Adequate personalization of selected e-health services can save time, increase health situation awareness and further patient empowerment.
