Abstract

eHealth holds a diverse range of successful and unsuccessful applications. It is often unclear why this difference in success appears because eHealth is usually approached as a black box. Additionally, we tend to evaluate non-treatment-like and treatment-like applications the same way. Both approaches focus on searching for effects and outcomes. This results in applications that are wrongfully put away. Placing an application on the continuous dimensions of use-structure and caregiver involvement on the grid presented in this paper helps to make conscious and better decisions when (re)designing and evaluating eHealth applications. Positioning on the grid influences the terms ’user’ and ’usage’ but also has implications for the way we can evaluate and (re)design eHealth applications. The grid is a tool to gain insight, facilitate thought processes, and start discussions, and is not meant to be a formal and rigid model. This tool helps making conscious choices in (re)design and evaluation of applications.
