MetadataShow full item record
Mobile health represents a relatively new trend in the field of health and involves the use of mobile devices to support healthcare. Despite this, there are still open challenges with respect to design, functionality and implementation aspects. The aim of this paper is to illustrate how to involve patients in the design and testing of the mobile phone-based Personal Health Record (PHR) system called M-Health App, and report our two-hour participatory design sessions with patients at Allan Galpin Health Centre - Uganda. The paper further presents insightful results from our formative evaluations, which will be used in the further implementation of M-Health App.
