Abstract

eHealth technology and remote telecare (RT) in particular have proven benefits for older adults who want to age-in-place. Although, RT is not fully adopted on a large scale by the Dutch senior population. This empirical study aims to predict the willingness to use RT by Dutch seniors with computer experience by means of a web based questionnaire. Demographic variables, experience with computers and other technology and expectations of RT are the input for the predictive regression model. Findings from the analysis (n=166) suggest that expected enhancement of motivation for self-care, expected usability, level of support needed and level of education are the main predictors for seniors' willingness to use RT. The found predictors will be used to construct a pilot course for seniors to introduce RT and exploring facilitating conditions that might contribute to a successful adoption
