  2. Book
  3. Case study
  4. Chess discussion board
  5. Cohort study, no control group, no comparison to other methods of testing hearing
  6. Commentary--not a study no info
  7. Comparing paper based consent form with cd-rom, no tailored info
  8. Contact with therapist
  9. Contains learning modules only--no tailoring
  10. Data not abstractable
  11. Description and pilot test
  12. Description of the system
  13. Development study
  14. Development survey
  15. Discussion board
  16. Doctoral dissertation
  17. Electronic diaries only to measure. The study does not examine its impact.
  18. Evaluate an internet-based hearing test, no control grp
  19. Evaluate the use of a computerized concept for lifestyle
  20. Evaluation
  21. Focus group--does not address any real barriers
  22. Group therapy, no tailored, therapist presence
  23. It seems to talk more on lines with group discussion and moderation of group.
  24. Descriptive
  25. No data comparing experimental and control group; no barriers nor facilitators
  26. No data--usage study
  27. No health outcomes, just a satisfaction assessment with the system
  28. No outcome data available
  29. No quantitative data are reported
  30. No result
  31. No tailored information provided to patients from this application, only to physicians
  32. No tailoring required
  33. No usable data
  34. No usable outcomes, and i really don’t think this is a tailored in tailored out study
  35. Not about the application but about the parent
  36. Not computerized tailored
  37. Not tailored and can not isolate the impact of the application from impact of the community chat
  38. Not tailored and intervention includes human counseling
  39. Not tailored or interactive
  40. Not tailored, and there was clinician interaction
  41. Only abstract
  42. Output is not applied to the patient
  43. Overview of a type of full-body sensor
  44. Participants had no access to application
  45. Patient-centered care
  46. Pilot testing of the instrument. Does not look like a study
  47. Presence of health care provider -web-based tool to help people to manage their health and improve their communication with their health care provide
  48. Qualitative analysis of website usage; does not provide barriers nor facilitators
  49. Survey on access to the internet
  50. Survey on general use
  51. Tailoring not required
  52. Tailoring occurs at the level of chat group and therapist
  53. Tailoring was accomplished in this study by providing flexibility in the number and timing of receipt of message each day.
  54. Telecommunication
  55. Telemedicine
  56. This is a pilot beta-test
  57. This is a study of “use” not any real outcomes
