Heart failure is a common disorder associated with high morbidity and mortality. Early diagnosis and treatment of exacerbations can lower the amount of (re-)hospitalizations. Patients can be supported to self-manage their disease by integrating persuasive coaching in a telemonitoring technology. The Twente TEACH Consortium is a multidisciplinary partnership, under which the iMediSense telemonitoring technology was developed. A mixed-methods approach was used to evaluate and improve the behavioral support of this platform. Methods included log data analysis, stakeholder interviews, usability tests, and a scoping literature review. Results showed that iMediSense is easy to use, achieving high adherence in a sixty days pilot study. A conceptual behavior change module grounded in goal setting theory was developed to provide persuasive coaching. We discuss the potential of our method, the implications of our findings , and present our ideas for further research to advance knowledge of a data-driven persuasive coaching approach to support behavior change.
