This work introduces a novel Behavioral Informatics Reporting Framework (BIIRF) which has been developed in the effort to review, study and compare the increasing number of Behavioral Informatics (BI) interventions for Connected Health (CH). The framework was developed through an iterative design cycle and it comprises of (i) a short-list of BI Intervention Eligibility Criteria for candidate interventions, and (ii) a BI Intervention Reporting Form. The eligibility criteria attempt to define the scope of the framework, while the reporting form - the heart of the framework - includes a hierarchical list of 39 features of interest for BI interventions, which are organized in 8 feature categories. The included features were carefully selected based on a number of predefined objectives and a successful BI intervention for the prevention of obesity and eating disorders (namely the SPLENDID intervention) has been employed as an example to facilitate the completion of the form. BIIRF has undergone preliminary evaluation and the evaluation outcomes are being exploited towards the improvement of the framework.
