The use of patient-collected data is increasingly being used to improve the quality of interactions and communications between individuals and their health experts (e.g. clinicians, therapists, trainers). In this talk I will present details of three studies that seek to  contribute to better diagnosis and management of care and well-being. The systems provide either real-time data, historical data (e.g. weeks) or both and can be used in either face-to-face consultations or tele-consultations.
