Description

As of 2005, 133 million Americans suffer from chronic diseases, and many of those are preventable with lifestyle changes (CDC, 2014). With the increasing use of mobile technology, many people are using technology to track, monitor, and motivate life changes or disease management or prevention. This mobile health technology is referred to as m-health. Surveys were sent to students at a public university in the Midwest. Students were assessed on the following themes: prompt for user activity; reward the user for healthy behaviors; support a personalized user experience; allow users to track their behavior and symptoms; and provide positive feedback to support and encourage the user. Data from this study is vital to future research in m-health development to ascertain what users are looking for, and particularly in the iPad application, My Wellness Manager.
