The effectiveness of telehealth and mHealth technologies in long-term well being management relies on their acceptability with users. Factors such as low self-efficacy and poor peer support are frequently noted barriers that inhibit users from taking an active part in self-management. Here we report a work-in-progress research project, Vital signs in Music (ViM), using automatically-generated short music pieces from vital sign readings as an additional personalised data format to encourage sharing and to help establish peer support amongst users.
