    Abstract

    We present the design and user study based evaluation of a personal health dashboard aimed to supported reflective behavior change. Rather than providing direct actionable instructions, we target to present health data in such a way that the users infer their health status and create their own actions from the data itself. User interviews revealed a wide range of potential challenges with the adoption of personal health dashboards in general. Features that enabled a single view to health data from multiple sources and the comparison of trends in different parameters over the long term were highlighted as desirable. Our study provides data on an alternative approach to health data presentation and behavior change for researchers and designers working in the area.
