  • 3. + Theoretical Base M-services for health • Most recently there has been interest in the use of m-services for health and transformative services in the area of mental health (Schuster, Drennan & Lings, 2013; 2015), eating, weight-loss and smoking. Creating value for the user (Experiential Value) • Creating value via m-services is well established in the literature (Gummerus et al., 2011; Pihlström et al., 2008; van Riel et al., 2005) Games and Gamification •Gamification growing area of interest in services marketing (Harwood & Garry, 2015; Huotari & Hamari, 2016) •M-games seen as largest entertainment revenue maker for mobile (Choi, Seol, Lee, Cho & Park, 2008) •Games shown to achieve social and health outcomes (Mulcahy, Russell-Bennett & Rundle-Thiele, 2015; Russell-Bennett, Leo, Rundle-Thiele & Drennan, 2016)
  • 4. + Changing behaviour via Gamification  Gamification has shown to increase customer engagement (Harwood & Garry, 2015) and improve mobile marketing effectiveness (Hofacker, et al. 2016)  Gamification proven as a strategy to engage and motivate doctors (McKeown, Kraysem Shergill, Siu & Sweet, 2016) and customers to improve health care (Hamari & Kovisito, 2015) Character Challenge Feedback Virtual Training Behaviour Monitoring Gamification Attributes (Mulcahy, Russell-Bennett, Kuhn & Zainnudin, 2015)
  • 5. + Creating value for the user  Experiential value, defined as the “interactive, relativistic, preference experience” (Holbrook, 2006, p.715) is at the heart of services marketing and exchanges with consumers (French and Lefebvre, 2012), as it helps explain why consumers use a service (Cronin et. al., 2000).  Research has shown m-services can create value for the benefit of the user, but this is mostly commercial in nature (Pura, 2005)  Studies have found services (Zainuddin, Russell-Bennett & Previte, 2011;2013) and online social marketing games (Mulcahy, et al. 2015) can create value which can change behavior  Limited research into m-service technology which provides both entertainment and behaviour focused benefits for the user Amusement Value Information Value Distraction Value Value dimensions investigated (Mulcahy, Russell-Bennett, Kuhn & Zainuddin, 2015)
