Title
Assessment of participant compliance with a Web-based home healthcare system for promoting specific health checkups
Abstract

We investigated the effectiveness of a Web-based healthcare system that allows participants to record measurements of blood pressure, body weight, and the number of steps walked per day. After receiving a medical examination, participants were registered on the Web-based system and encouraged to record data. A total of 223 participants initiated contact with the system; however, only 27 monitored their blood pressure on more than 60 days during the 3-month period. Furthermore, only 46 participants monitored their body weight, and 79 monitored the number of steps taken per day. Although specific health checkups are important to prevent diseases, we conclude that existing health checkup monitoring is not sufficient, and we should develop a new Web-based health checkup and monitoring system that is more familiar to the participants.
