Studying factors affecting the implementation and feasibility of a prototype personal health application for diabetics and their health care providers

The Foundation's program, Project HealthDesign: Rethinking the Power and Potential of Personal Health Records, was designed to expand a vision of personal health records and encourage the market to develop products that meet the diverse needs of patients. This qualitative study will use semi-structure key informant interviewing as the primary data collection mechanism. The resulting verbatim interview transcripts and investigator field notes will be subjected to thematic analysis to generate key findings about the implementation and market feasibility of a prototype personal health application. An original research findings manuscript targeted for publication in an relevant peer-reviewed journal will be produced along with, if feasible, new functional and/or technical requirements that may drive future development iterations of our PHA (HealthReachMobile), the Tromso PHA (Few Touch) and/or the Sujansky & Associates Common Platform.
