The participatory health revolution is shaping consumersâ health behaviors that are increasingly influence by peopleâs desire to play an active role in promoting a positive life functioning. Technologies are addressing the emerging needs of the participatory health, as they favor a proactive usersâ attitude. This chapter describes the results of a software-assisted quali-quantitative study aimed at exploring the scientific debate about technological interventions for wellbeing in the era of participatory health. Based on the studyâs results, technologies for wellbeing in the participatory health era may be clustered depending on the âcontext of delivery,â on their degree of personalization,â and on their inner âconceptualization of positive interventionsâ. According to a consumer health engagement perspective, those technologies are not mutually exclusive but can coexist based on the specific wellness needs and health engagement expectations of their users.
