Abstract

The present project aims to develop a mHealth solution leveraging on network and mobile technologies to assist patients with cardiovascular disease to promote their adherence to cardiac rehabilitation exercise. The software of solution comprises two mobile apps on smart phones and one website on Windows Azure cloud, where two apps communicates with website via mobile services. The design of software is based on the proven behavior change strategy to improve patient’s self-efficacy, self-regulation, and social support in cardiac rehabilitation. First, to improve self-efficacy, the solution can continuously summarize patient’s achievements, illustrate role model and provide therapeutic suggestions and motivation messages. Second, to promote self-regulation, the solution can bring the therapeutic plan to patient’s mobile phone, set appropriate short- and long-term goals and real-time monitor the performance using heart rate monitor. Last, the solution can help patients to share their progress with friends and family members via group chatting, sharing, and messaging on smart phones. The system is currently tested by a randomized controlled pilot study at the rehabilitation centre with National Heart Centre Singapore.
