Evaluation of the use of an interactive web-based support program for optimizing the management of Diabetes Mellitus
Nicol Nijland*, Lisette Van Gemert-Pijnen , Saskia Kelders , Bart Brandenburg , Erwin Seydel

Background: The introduction of the Internet into medical practice as an information-sharing and communication medium has brought about many opportunities for the management of chronic care. Research has shown that teleconsultation for example is a practical, cost-effective, and reliable way of delivering a worthwhile health care service to diabetics [1,2]. Medicinfo, a leading e-health company in the Netherlands, used this knowledge to develop an interactive web-based diabetes self-managemen...

Factors influencing the long-term use of a web-based disease management program for supporting self-care of patients with diabetes type II
Nicol Nijland*, Julia Van Gemert-pijnen, Bart Brandenburg*, Erwin Seydel

Background: The take-up of eHealth applications in general is still rather low and only limited information is available on the level of technology usage among specific patient groups. Objective: The aim of this study was to explore the factors that influence the use -initial and long-term- of a web-based disease management program for supporting the self-care of patients with diabetes type II. Methods: Using a mixed-methods research design with log files, usability tests, interviews and...

Grounding EHealth - Development of a Web 2.0 Framework for Design, Implementation and Evaluation of EHealth Applications
Nicol Nijland*, Julia Van Gemert-pijnen, Bart Brandenburg*, Erwin Seydel

Since the discussion about What is eHealth? and the introduction of the next generation of technology Web 2.0 more and more studies stress the importance of theoretical models or frameworks to provide evidence for bridging the gap between medicine and technology to make eHealth usable. However, most existing frameworks focus almost exclusively on one aspect of eHealth, such as technology acceptance or health information quality, rather than on the multi-determinants that influence the success...

A Web-based Diabetes Education Programme and The Challenges Regarding Its Evolution
Annette Ovink*, Lisette Van Gemert-pijnen*, Nicol Nijland*, Evelien Heinrich, Hans Ossebaard*, Nicolaas Schaper

Encouragement and support of selfmanagement with the use of web based technology is a promising area in diabetes care. The Diabetes Interactive Education Programme DIEP is an online application for persons with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2) and their health care providers in the Netherlands. The programme aims to increase understanding of DM2 and its sequelae; to stimulate active patient participation and patient-health care provider interaction; and to provide tools to support adequate self...

Participatory Development for Human Centred and Value-Driven eHealth Technologies
Lisette Van Gemert, Nicol Nijland*

Today’s healthcare system faces problems such as aging, a growth in multimorbidity, a serious decrease in the number of available personnel, and a limited budget. Technology could contribute to the solution of these problems by supporting a better balance between self-care and professional care. Current demands by ‘e-patients’ to manage their own health and well-being may be met by technological interventions. From systematic reviews and empirical-based studies, we know that the upt...

A Wiki for Collaborative Development in eHealth
Lisette Van Gemert-pijnen*, Hans C. Ossebaard*, Nicol Nijland*

eHealth technologies may contribute to solve some serious challenges to global health and health care. As of yet the impact of eHealth technologies on healthcare practice is rather small compared to investments and professional expectation. In our research we have identified five major clusters of causes: a) inadequate research methods, b) lack of knowledge about the process of technological innovation, c) a skewed medical expert-driven approach to eHealth technologies, and d) the use of inap...
