Abstract

We report a new mobile application, HHeal, that integrates individuals' flu risk information and flu-preventive behaviors. The app provides a personal flu risk bar that rises when the user is near someone with flu-like symptoms and drops when the user finishes one of the suggested flu-preventive behaviors. Preliminary results show that participants favored the personal flu risk bar design. Participants had positive experiences when their personal risk bars dropped. They were motivated to initiate flu-preventive behaviors when their personal risk bars rose. Our next step includes studying reward strategies, users' motivations to share personal health information, and building a more accurate model of flu risk. Copyright is held by the author/owner(s).
