Abstract

In this chapter, the authors discuss two case studies that compare and contrast the use of barcode scanning, voice recording, and patient self reporting as a means to monitor the nutritional intake of a chronically ill population. In the first study, they found that participants preferred unstructured voice recordings rather than barcode scanning. Since unstructured voice recordings require costly transcription and analysis, they conducted a second case study where participants used barcode scanning or an integrated voice response system to record nutritional intake. The authors found that although the latter input method provided participants with a faster method to input food items, participants had difficulty using the system despite training.
