Background: A major criticism of technologies designed to support behaviour change (BC) is that they cannot demonstrate efficacy or measurable outcomes due to a lack of an appropriate theoretical framework for the intervention design. ProACT is an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project that aims to develop and evaluate a digital integrated care ecosystem to support older people with multimorbidity (PwM). The ProACT system will be designed using a theoretically driven BC framework to improve adoption and promote positive self- management behaviours.

Introduction: Digital self-management for older people holds promises for aging well. However, the adoption readiness remains limited due to barriers in e.g. digital literacy, health and support. Furthermore, older people with multimorbidity (PwMs) are at in-creased risk of experiencing social disconnectedness. This living lab study explores the role of social connectedness in dealing with the challenges of digital self-management.
