We will present the preliminary results from a research project called EMPARK which is a collaboration between our university group, the patient association and clinicians in Örebro and Uppsala. We have developed a system consisting of sensors and a tablet used by the patients at home to record and display symptom- and treatment-related data. Data about sleep, motor function, medication time and dose are recorded automatically, complemented by self-reported physical activity, meal intake time, and health-related quality of life are collected and transferred to a central server. The collected data is presented to patients and their caregivers using graphical interfaces developed with a user-centered design.
Preliminary results indicate that the EMPARK system is seen by the patients as a useful tool for supporting patient empowerment, improving self-management and communication between the patient and the clinician. The EMPARK system also provides possibilities for clinicians to access continuous data facilitating giving patients advice at follow-up encounters. The ultimate goal of the project is to measure perceived change in empowerment or self-awareness of patients who get feedback on their data using the proposed system. Secondary outcome measures include user satisfaction with the system and improved communication between clinicians and patients.
