Intention to use a personal health record: a theoretical analysis using the technology acceptance model
International Journal of Healthcare Technology and Management, 08/05/2013Noblin AM et al.
Although the perceived usefulness of a personal health record was a significant determining factor related to intention to adopt, technology barriers were indirectly related to intention to adopt as well. Technology barriers can be addressed by providing office staff for hands–on training as well as assistance with interpretation of medical information. Longitudinal research is needed to determine if the technology barriers decline over time and usefulness of the information promotes increased demand.
