Each person is different and should be treated assuch. Comparing personal data to group averages can give basicideas about personal conditions, but does not suffice for providing‘true’ personalized feedback. In health psychology, a paradigmshift is taking place from a general population approach towardsa more person-centered one. Instead of comparing a person withpopulation averages, the focus shifts towards comparing peoplewith themselves over time. The ‘Leefplezier’ project elaborateson this focus shift, by helping to sustain or improve the wellbeingof elderly people. The participating elderly people are askedto keep track of various psychological factors for a period oftime, by means of repetitive questionnaires via a mobile phoneapplication. At the end of this period, feedback is automaticallygenerated, based on the resulting time series dataset and by meansof automated vector autoregression.
