Abstract: To date, the adoption and diffusion of technology-enabled solutions to deliver better healthcare has been slow. There are many reasons for this. One of the most significant is that existing methodologies that are normally used in general for information communication technology (ICT) implementations tend to be less successful in a healthcare context. This chapter describes a knowledge-based adaptive mapping to realisation methodology that provides a means to traverse from idea to realisation rapidly and yet without compromising rigour so that success ensues. It is discussed in connection with trying to implement superior ICT-enabled approaches for facilitating superior chronic disease management.
