Abstract: Healthcare institutions increasingly delegate the self-management of their condition to patients and their extended network: consequently, there is an increasing production of patient health data outside healthcare settings, also thanks to the increasing number of digital technologies able to assist in the collecting, interpretation and use of health data. This shift on the “personal” dimension of data has placed emphasis on self- knowledge practices supported by personal informatics systems. In the last years, studies on digital technologies supporting lifestyle-related diseases are becoming interested in the so-called “personal experiments”, emphasizing self-interpretation of patient- generated health data through self-reflection. In this paper I will present some preliminary points concerning my PhD research project, in which I’m following the co-design and implementation of technology-supported personal experiments aiming to encourage type 2 diabetes patients to collect personal health data and increase their motivation and self- knowledge.
