Well-being, aging, and health (WBAH) are important aspects of life that affect all. The requirements for WBAH systems have also become a topic of common interest for researchers from different disciplines. There are a growing number of software practitioners working on various technology-enabled solutions for WBAH systems. Software systems provide personalized and tailored behavioral change programs for decreasing health risk factors. For WBAH applications to be successful, they must use and be described, in an accessible language that end users, lawyers, and regulators can understand. There are many examples where the language used is too clinical/technical and misunderstood.
