2014 (English)In: IFMBE Proceedings / [ed] Laura M. Roa Romero, Springer, 2014, Vol. 41, 1358-1361 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Self-reporting of symptoms is widely used and validated in the field of psychiatry, also in the context of bipolar disorder. This paper presents work on a self-reporting system for bipolar patients using a smartphone to gather data from the patient, which is communicated to a server via a secure connection. The data is presented in a web application to a patient for his/hers self-monitoring, and to medical personnel associated with the treatment of the patient. The work described here is part of an ongoing system development and gives insights into the field research and motivation for choosing Life Charting Methodology as a structural element. Leaning on such well accepted and validated therapeutic tools should secure validity and feasibility of the final system that would appear to patients as familiar and easy to use. Consequently, the application is expected to be directly understandable to everyone involved in the treatment. Programming solutions will capture the essence, but will be adjusted to the electronic environment which will be validated for its correctness and user-friendliness.
