Abstract

MyHealthFrame is a communication platform that telemedicine (and well-being) services can leverage to deliver motivational messages and notifications to their end-users. Instead of being a telemedicine service in itself, MyHealthFrame is a channel through which external services can reach their users to provide reminders or deliver simple information such as number of steps. To its end-users, MyHealthFrame is a tablet device which is designed to be perceived as a photoframe and can be immersed in the users’ living environment. In this paper, we describe the design and the preliminary assessment of the platform. The results of the feasibility study with five older adults (65+) are promising.
