Hummel Address correspondence to: The widespread use of web based applications, based on the principles of persuasive technology, show promising results in reducing these costs.
However, it is also known that the adherence to these kinds of technologies is not very high. To increase adherence and decrease attrition persuasive manipulations will be useful. Objective The aim of this study is an assessment of five persuasive manipulations: They received all five manipulations in different combinations.
Most users were highly educated A mixed- methods research design was used. An assessment is done based on the online Analytic Hierarchy Process questionnaire from which patient preferences for the five manipulations could be derived adherence to the course. Log files were used, with the following main outcome measures: Also, fifteen telephone depth interviews were done, to collect information on the reasons for adherence and attrition.
Results out of users filled in the AHP questionnaire from which 79 questionnaires were consistent. The most preferred manipulations were personal feedback and text messages.
It was personal feedback that appealed users: The designs that had integrated personal feedback and text messages were both neither the triggers for the highest percentage of users that completed all nine lessons nor the triggers that scores the highest average amount of completed lessons.
Also, none of the other designs with the other combinations of manipulations did show a significant difference. Just like the log files, that did not show an influence or correlation of the manipulations in all eight designs on adherence to the lessons or the technology.
The usage patterns per manipulation show a decline in amount of log-ins in week 4 from an average amount of log-ins of 1. The attrition pattern is a constant attrition with a constant proportion of users that drop out each week. Because of the small amount of users spread over eight designs, it was not possible to connect statistically reliable the data to manipulations that were received.
None of the drop outs has signed up for a telephone interview what makes it impossible to support the data with qualitative results.
Non related persuasive technology factors, indicated by users, influencing their adherence were costs and the strength of the complaints. Users can not give an estimation of their willingness to pay.
None of the designs with a specific combination of manipulations show a unusually high or low amount of log-ins in comparison with the other designs, differences in usage patterns in comparison with the other designs, or differences in amount of completed lessons in comparison with the other designs.
Statements about which individual manipulation has the possibility to increase adherence as represented in usage by times of logging in and amount of completed lessons cannot be done. However, it is possible to derive the users preferences for individual manipulations.
Personal feedback is evaluated by users as the most important manipulation to keep using Voluit Leven, followed by text messages. Tailoring, automatic response and multimedia are evaluated as less important.
Personalisation is evaluated as unimportant to keep using Voluit Leven. In the future, more research is needed focusing on the individual influence of personal feedback and text messages without integrating them in multiple manipulation designs.

Four of these people have a depression or anxiety. Perhaps you may be, or me.
The calculations of the National Compass of Dutch Health Care show that the costs for treatment for people with depression and anxiety are growing in the Netherlands [3, 4]. Costs for the treatment of depressions and anxiety by a general practitioner or psychologist are high, and in a few years even as high as the costs for heart diseases .
For this reason, alternative treatments are becoming more and more widespread practice . One of these alternatives is offering online treatments to achieve larger target groups, to provide effective assistance and to increase the autonomy of patients .
These so called web based applications are increasingly successful used for treatments like depression and anxiety, because they can reduce costs , increase the access to health care, increase self-care management and perhaps most important:3 Welcome To Saginaw Township, Mi Saginaw Township has all the amenities, opportunities and conveniences of a modern metropolitan area, but it still contains the distinctive spirit people have always.
