Abstract

Randomized controlled trials to evaluate the effectiveness of eHealth technologies provide only little understanding in why a particular outcome did occur. Log data analysis is a promising methodology to explain the found effects of eHealth technologies and to improve the effects. In this paper, we describe our experiences with the collection, analysis, and interpretation of log data from eHealth technology so far. It serves as a first step towards the development of a log data protocol to support eHealth research and will be extended and validated for different types of research questions and eHealth applications in the future.
