Abstract [en]

One of the latest trends in health informatics is Internet of Things (IoT). IoT consists of various types of technical objects connected to Internet and/or connected to each other, cooperating to reach a common goal. This pilot study explores how chronic patients, potential patients and healthcare personnel (n=100) perceive sensors and implanted sensors as two examples of IoT in remote healthcare. Data was collected through an acceptability questionnaire based on the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) framework using criteria as: performance expectancy; effort expectancy; attitude towards technology; and social influence. The pilot result indicated e.g. a strong acceptance of implants and that external sensors in a treatment requires further work. Differences between men and women were found: acceptance of sensors was preferred by women, and implants by men. In conclusion, IoT could be used to enhance person-centered healthcare, aiming to better engage patients in their treatment, rather than being a passive recipient of a medical intervention.
