This article explores how behavioral theory can facilitate the development, implementation, and evaluation of heath promotion software packages intended to influence personal health practices and/or assess heath risks.
Current behavioral theories and models are reviewed, and their relevance to developing health promotion software is discussed.
A series of six steps is suggested for developing and evaluating health promotion and appraisal software within a behavioral theory framework.
These steps should help to facilitate direct application of the theory-based process to heath promotion software development.
