Abstract

This paper presents the design and evaluation of a COPD mobile application which forms part of the WELCOME project (Wearable Sensing and Smart Cloud Computing for Integrated Care to COPD Patients with Comorbidities). A first prototype of this application has been implemented and is currently being evaluated with patients, human computer interaction experts and healthcare professionals in the UK and the Netherlands. The application allows COPD patients suffering also from different comorbidities to self-manage their disease by taking regular measurement, fill questionnaires requested by their healthcare professionals and follow different programs remotely. The usability and acceptability of the system by COPD patients in the UK are discussed in this paper.
