Abstract

The use of a personal health record to integrate one’s health data and help consumers manage their own healthcare is highly advocated. However, little is known about how patients actually use web-based personal health systems to manage their health-related tasks. An online system called healthy.me that provides consumers with targeted condition-specific information, a web-based personal health record, and tools such as a schedule manager, was developed at the University of New South Wales. This paper describes features of healthy.me and presents one of the modules iteratively developed in consultation with staff members at a major fertility clinic in NSW Australia to support patients undergoing an intensive eight-week in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment program.
