Receptivity to mobile health interventions
Intervention authors can likely increase the effectiveness of mobile health interventions (MHIs) by determining conditions under which individuals are able to receive, process, and use support. In this chapter, we will therefore first introduce and motivate the relevance of receptivity to MHIs. Second, we will describe the anatomy of an “ideal” MHI before key processes involved in the detection and prediction of receptivity to MHIs are discussed. Thereafter, we will review research on receptivity and summarize factors that may carry relevant signals for determining receptive states and thus, offer guidance for the design of receptivity-capable MHIs. We will conclude with challenges intervention authors and engineers face and offer opportunities for future work.
