          Abstract

          Mobile, pervasive, and ubiquitous computing technologies have the potential to transform healthcare by providing solutions to diagnose conditions and manage care. This paper describes a patient-centred approach to the design of a mobile application to support self-testing for sexually transmitted infections, providing easy and immediate access to diagnosis, treatment via electronic prescription, and partner notification. This paper presents the results of a series of focus group discussions with young people to explore their perceptions of the proposed system and discusses the emergent design principles that present challenges for user interface design and require consideration prior to the adoption of this mobile-based sexual health care.

          Innovation in sexually transmitted disease and HIV prevention: internet and mobile phone delivery vehicles for global diffusion.

          Efficacious behavioral interventions and practices have not been universally accepted, adopted, or diffused by policy makers, administrators, providers, advocates, or consumers. Biomedical innovations for sexually transmitted disease (STD) and HIV prevention have been embraced but their effectiveness is hindered by behavioral factors. Behavioral interventions are required to support providers and consumers for adoption and diffusion of biomedical innovations, protocol adherence, and sustained prevention for other STDs. Information and communication technology such as the Internet and mobile phones can deliver behavioral components for STD/HIV prevention and care to more people at less cost. Recent innovations in STD/HIV prevention with information and communication technology-mediated behavioral supports include STD/HIV testing and partner interventions, behavioral interventions, self-management, and provider care. Computer-based and Internet-based behavioral STD/HIV interventions have demonstrated efficacy comparable to face-to-face interventions. Mobile phone STD/HIV interventions using text-messaging are being broadly utilized but more work is needed to demonstrate efficacy. Electronic health records and care management systems can improve care, but interventions are needed to support adoption. Information and communication technology is rapidly diffusing globally. Over the next 5-10 years smart-phones will be broadly disseminated, connecting billions of people to the Internet and enabling lower cost, highly engaging, and ubiquitous STD/HIV prevention and treatment support interventions.

            From mobile phones to personal wellness dashboards.

            The paradigm of wellness mobiles will enable health-care professionals to have access to comprehensive real-time patient data at the point of care and anywhere there is cellular network coverage. More importantly, users can continuously and frequently track their health on the go and receive real-time user assistance when needed to alter their lifestyles. Recently, there has been a growing interest in developing proactive wellness products and health-related smartphone applications. However, developing quantifiable measures of wellness for continuous tracking and designing compliant-monitoring systems is quite challenging. This article motivates future research in this emerging field by presenting a ringside view of the recent developments and trends favoring this technology and the challenges facing the next generation of telemedicine.
