Abstract:Understanding patients' personal health information management (PHIM) can help us design better information technologies for health care. This study examines type 1 and type 2 diabetes patients’ PHIM, including motivators, activities, information items, and affective processes. A mixed methods approach including interviews and photo-documentation was carried out with 60 diabetes patients in the US and in China. Data analysis for 36 participants revealed 19 major categories of PHIM processes and 81 subcategories. Many of these categories are not examined in detail by existing studies. Further analysis explores the relationships between these categories and proposes design principles for health information technologies aimed to help people living with chronic illnesses.
