Descripción
Ambient Intelligence (AmI) allows the intelligent and natural interaction between the context and individuals. This paradigm will facilitate user support through novel medical protocol design for chronic disease treatment, based on the healthy lifestyle promotion. Cardiovascular Diseases (CVD) account for 45% of all deaths in the western world according to the 2004 World Health Organization statistic report. Heart Failure (HF), CVD?s primary paradigm, mainly affects people older than 65. The European MyHeart Projects mission is to empower citizens to fight CVD by leading a preventative lifestyle and allowing early diagnosis. This paper presents a model based on contexts to identify the patient interaction and the implementation of this model into a Heart Failure Management solution. Heart Failure Management daily monitors vital body signals, using wearable and mobile technologies, to continuously assess this chronic disease. The methodology applied herein has involved stakeholders in an iterative process: Model validation, feasibility, efficiency, user experience, and acceptance. These carefully designed systems play an important role in motivating people to adopt healthier lifestyles by using technical solutions. These solutions allow patient self-management of their chronic condition.
