We believe that this personalized patient page will empower and motivate patients to take control of their mental health. According to Daniel Pink (3), motivation comes with autonomy, mastery, and purpose. The personalized patient page that we have designed will contribute to the goal of motivating patients by helping them understand the severity of their depression, what it means to them, and what they can do to combat it. Making the patient’s health profile more individual, present, tangible, and straightforward will clarify the purpose of treatment. Second, providing patients and their relatives with information that they understand and will remember provides a foundation for engaging in treatment. Third, as health care professionals encourage patient autonomy by relinquishing part of their sovereignty in regard to treatment, patients are more likely to take control of their own health. Finally, a patient page may prevent misunderstandings during doctor-patient communications and provide needed additional information.
