Samenvatting

The objective fot this study at Philips Research is to create auseful system built upon a PHR system for use by Chronic cardiac patients to facilitate them in keeping track and recording their medical data and providing added value for them.
During the research phase of this project, the investigated PHR systems provided lots of information about which features are available in current PHR based applications and what is important to focus on when developing a new PHR based application. The main consensus from this research is that it is important to focus on a simple lay-out (well arranged), personalized information and keeping medical information as simple as possible.

They want to keep doing the things can do themselves, to gain a sense of independency. The Participants also indicate to want some more information about their medication in a simple and clear way.
The information gained in the research and interviews phases has been used in the concepting phase to generate concepts based upon this information. Two concepts hanve been created focusing on weight measurement ande medication information. Requirement have been created for each concept.
In the development phase of the project the two concepts have been realized into a functioning demo application on the iPad. Which has been user tested by four chronic cardiac patients.
The results of this study are that systems built upon PHRs can easely be used bu eldery people when the interface is designed to be easy to navigate and use by this group. It has also beenfound that interacting with an interface on a tablet computer is no problem for them. it has also been found that PHRs can provide the user with a sense of independence, something that mani chronic cardiac patients long for.
