Patient evaluation of Dr. Cecilia with recommended future implementations (English)
Abstract [sv]

Idag är unga kvinnor den grupp som utgör majoriteten av ätstörningsdrabbade, där anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa och EDNOS (eating disorder not otherwise specified) är de vanligast förekommande diagnoserna. Mando Group AB behandlar patienter med ätstörningar och har till patienternas hjälp utformat datorprogrammet Doktor Cecilia som är en virtuell behandlare till vilken patienterna kan ställa frågor. Användandet ligger enligt Mando Group AB inte på önskvärda nivåer och programmet har inte heller tidigare genomgått en utvärdering. Syftet med detta arbete var att ta fram potentiella förbättringar av programmet och att av patienterna få dessa tillsammans med programmet utvärderade. Vidare utfördes en enkätundersökning på två Mandometerkliniker för att kartlägga patienternas åsikter om programmet och de framtagna potentiella förbättringarna. Resultatet visade att patienterna var positivt inställda till implementerandet av bland annat röstsvar, tvåvägskommunikation och möjlighet till att se till programmet vanligt ställda frågor. Detta resultat användes sedan för att framställa rekommenderade implementationer som skulle kunna förbättra programmet och på sikt kunna öka dess användning.

Abstract [en]

Today, adolescent females represent the majority of people suffering from eating disorders with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and EDNOS (eating disorder not otherwise specified) being the most common diagnoses. Mando Group AB treats patients with eating disorders and has for the sake of the patients developed the computer software ‘Doctor Cecilia’ which is a virtual caretaker to whom patients may direct their queries. Mando Group AB has stated that the usage of the software has not reached the desirable level amongst their patients. Moreover, the software has not been subject to an evaluation. The purpose of this thesis has been to produce suggestions of potential improvements for ‘Doctor Cecilia’ by consulting patients in order to evaluate these improvements as well as the software in general. As such, an investigation was conducted at two Mandometer-clinics in order to clarify the opinions of the patients regarding the software itself and the potential improvements which are presented by this thesis. The results showed that the patients were in favor of the implementation of for instance voice response, two-way communication and the opportunity to see frequently asked questions. The results of this thesis have been used to produce recommended implementations that could improve the software and eventually increase its usage.
