Samenvatting

This paper describes the development and first
version of an eHealth system for sports physicians who support
employees in improving their health and fitness. Regular
physical activity improves quality of life and has various health
benefits. Companies have an interest in the health and fitness
of their employees. For employers it is important to encourage
this in a safe way. To this end, the sports physicians of Isala
Hospital in Zwolle, The Netherlands, offer sports medical
examination and guidance programs to companies. The sports
physicians wanted to use smartphone technology to improve
and expand their services. It was important for them to have
all the client data stored confidentially in one database under
their own supervision, e.g., to perform scientific analyses. Since
not all details of the end product were clear at the start of the
project, an incremental and iterative development method was
used. In this way, a prototype online and mobile data tracking
system is developed that makes it possible (among others) to:
give employees access to their sports medical examinations
results with personalized standard values; insert goals that are
advised by the sport physicians; use a heart rate sensor and a
smartphone application (app) for training data entry by the
employees themselves; import data from other sports apps;
compute individual ‘s heart rate zones and energy use of a
training based on sports medical test results. A focus group
session with sports physicians have been performed to evaluate
the prototype and to discuss extensions. Important
enhancements include periodical entry of health data and
comparing sports activities with the Dutch Standard for
Healthy Exercise and the Fit Standard. We present the
approach we have chosen and the functionalities of the first
prototype of the system, which typically make it an application
that supports sports medical services.
