Revolutionizing Mobile Healthcare Monitoring Technology: Analysis of Features through Task Model
Proliferation of health information and patient communication had allowed patients to have deeper understanding of their ailments leading to positive effects on personal health management (PHM). There are many PHM systems developed in the form of web and mobile applications to cultivate personal responsibility for one’s own health. Thus, this paper aims to explore the alternatives and avenues available in the form of mobile PHM applications utilized by patients, caregivers and medical professionals that can provide value-adding initiatives to improve the process of personal medical care. A Task model for the development of a mobile PHM will be discussed based on six factors, namely (1) subject; (2) objective; (3) control; (4) tool; (5) context; and (6) communication.
