Abstract

In this article we propose our framework for healthcare self-management that combines ubiquitous and social computing as persuasion media. The framework enables social interactions between the patients, doctors, and other users in their online social community through a web portal as well as through their smartphones. To help users in adopting healthy behavior, they are monitored for various activities and persuaded using different persuasion strategies that are adaptive and are according to user's behavior. Persuasion strategies are applied using persuasion profile of a user. A behavior model of each user is created that is based on Fogg's behavior model but also encompasses user preferences, health profile and social profile.
