Research in the area of developing home based self-management systems aim to provide a means whereby a patient suffering from a chronic condition can maintain a better quality of life while achieving their desired life goal. The use of everyday technologies to facilitate the self-management of three chronic conditions has been proposed. In this paper we outline the methodology by which we have acquired the functional requirements for healthcare professionals and patients in relation to three chronic diseases (Stroke, Congestive Heart Failure and Chronic pain), and describe how these requirements have been mapped onto a technological solution.
