My research focuses on future mobile computing and communications solutions employed in an emerging field of mhealth, where mobile applications and services support individuals in managing own lifestyle choices, and if sick, health and care needs, interpreting symptoms or supporting medication adherence. The challenge lies in an understanding users’ acceptance factors for mhealth applications – including the users’ expectations, as well as their perceived experience in different contexts of daily life and changing (health/care) needs. Derived from that, the goal of my research is to understand requirements for mobile computing and communications solutions employed in future mhealth solutions.
