This chapter evaluates the application of three of the most widely used behavior modification theories in the design of an effective interactive behavior change technology (IBCT), a technological mans for improving self-care behavior of diabetes patients. These include the Social Cognitive Theory, the Transtheoretical Model, and the Health Belief Model. This chapter evaluates the specification applications of these theories in interactive health web sites, virtual community-based intervention, and ubiquitous computing. It also highlights the potential of IBCT as a supplemental resource that provides support for individual health actions, improving disease management, and in consequence, preventing long-term complications.

Keywords:   behavior modification theories, IBCT, self-care behavior, diabetes patients, Social Cognitive Theory, Transtheoretical Model, Health Belief Model
