Abstract:Background: The ‘Twente TEACH’ consortium is a partnership between the University of Twente, Thales, Menzis, Ziekenhuisgroep Twente (ZGT) and Vodafone. By conjoined efforts the consortium developed the iMediSense telemonitoring and coaching technology that aims to provide efficient and effective care for the growing population of chronic congestive heart failure(CHF) patients in the Netherlands. A pilot study showed that this technology was easy to use and that by further improvement it could be useful to increase self-management of CHF populations. Objective: To improve the feedback and coaching support of the iMediSense technology by exploring and describing the implementation within existing technologies of Goal Setting Theory and goal setting as a behavioural change technique to effectively increase self-management of CHF populations. Method: A mixed methods approach was employed guided by the CeHRes Roadmap, the Persuasive Systems Design model and the Agile Science Process, also supported by standardization tools like the Behaviour Change Technique Taxonomy (v1). A scoping literature review was conducted, which included a stakeholder consultation stage. Additionally, log data analyses were conducted to explore the use and usage of the iMediSense system. Finally, a concept of a goal setting module based on the agile science criteria was proposed, and its potential implementation was illustrated by the development of personas and use-case scenarios. Results: The scoping search resulted in thirteen studies that addressed the main theme of technologies aiming to support CHF self-management and which included goal setting as an active component or theoretical basis. Five eHealth technologies were identified from these articles. The Goal Setting Theory constructs addressed by these technologies and their aim and operationalization of goal setting as a behavioural change technique were mapped and described. Conclusion: To improve the feedback and coaching support of the iMediSense technology a concept for a goal setting module was proposed and described. This module focuses on increasing the patient’s confidence to perform self-care behaviours also by providing feedback on progress towards goals. Persuasive principles that could complement this module were
