Qualitative Evaluations of mHealth Interventions: Current Gaps and Future Directions


Bradway, Meghan; Leibowitz, Kari; Garrison, Kathleen A; Howe, Lauren; Årsand, Eirik (2020). Qualitative Evaluations of mHealth Interventions: Current Gaps and Future Directions. Studies in Health Technology and Informatics, 270:1041-1045.

Abstract

Psycho-social factors are often addressed in behavioral health studies. While the purpose of many mHealth interventions is to facilitate behavior change, the focus is more prominently on the functionality and usability of the technology and less on the psycho-social factors that contribute to behavior change. Here we aim to identify the extent to which mHealth interventions for patient self- management address psychological factors. By understanding users' motivations, facilitators, and mindsets, we can better tailor mHealth interventions to promote behavior change.
