    Abstract

    The overall purpose of this study is the enhancement of devices and visualisations used by older adults as part of a telecare system for the self-management of health conditions. The opinions and feelings towards devices that could be used as part of a telecare system were gathered from a range of older people. This was done through the use of technology evaluation workshops, and the subsequent analysis of the collected data using grounded theory and thematic coding methodologies. Presenting healthcare data to an elderly person with chronic health issues, may be an appropriate way to help that person to better manage their condition, if the data can be understood.
