Abstract:
E-health has undergone many changes during the years. One is the development of web-based self-help services for patients and citizens with health concerns. This article presents design ideas of a web-based stress intervention system that takes the development of self-help services further. The aim of the system is to help people with mild to intermediate levels of stress change patterns of behavior and take control of their stressful life situations. The system includes not only self-help through individual work with stress-related issues, but it also complements the individual efforts with help from peers and medical professionals. The system then becomes a platform for combining multiple help online. The system design ideas have resulted from research studies and practical experiences of stress management and web-based self-help systems. The article also presents a map of the system structure and a couple of scenarios to illustrate in what ways the system usage can be characterized by multiple help online and a holistic approach to stress intervention. The article ends with reflections on how to evaluate this type of intervention system.
