Abstract [en]

Introduction: To achieve quality care in the person's home implies that the way we perform the care has to be developed. In this development new technology services, including mobile distance-spanning technology and information- and communication technology, has to be used. The aim of this presentation is to explore some issues important to consider before implementation of e-health services in care of older persons at home. Method: The presentation is based on studies where healthy older persons (n=23), older persons who had experience of being cared for with mobile distance-spanning technology (n=9) and general practitioners (n=17) were interviewed about their perceptions, views and experiences concerning the use of technology in care at home and quality care. The interviews were analysed by qualitative content analysis. Results: In the results from the different studies there were some common results. One was the importance of human meetings; another was that the person in need of care and the health professional need to know each other if virtual meetings should be possible. Other issues brought up in the different studies were trust, quality care, the need of combining home care services with visits at health care centres and hospitals, different technical equipment are only useful in specific circumstances, and mobile distance-spanning technology should not be looked at separately but as one part of a complex chain of health care services where all parts of the chain are needed. Conclusion: E-health including mobile distance-spanning technology and information- and communication technology is on its way to be accepted and used in home care for older persons. It is important that nurses as professionals actively take part in the development, designing and testing of the technical devices.
