A poster together with Heidi Enwald, Noora Hirvonen and Kristina Eriksson-Backa at Persuasive technology 2020 conference.


This poster presents key findings from ongoing work within the Finnish research project “Taking Health Information Behavior into Account: implications of a neglected element for successful implementation of consumer health technologies on older adults“, funded by the Academy of Finland (2015-2020). There is a need for patients’ involvement and for the content of e-health services to be more consumer-focused. Individuals interaction with health information and their capacities to do so (i.e., health information literacy) could be used for tailoring health communication and as a basis for personalized and user-centered system design. The project aims at giving foundations for development of e-health services that are comprehensible, meaningful, and user friendly.
