Abstract

Adherence determines the impact of digital health interventions. Standard tools provide a measure for user experience and predict adherence. We evaluated the User Engagement Scale Short Form (UES-SF) during the POEmaS project, a randomized clinical trial of an online weight loss platform. We received answers from 178 participants (13.7% of the cohort) and correlated the UES-SF scores with the number of sessions attended. Our findings suggest the UES-SF is an accurate evaluation of user experience, but only one domain (reward) was associated with long-term use.
