Abstract [en]

Introduction: Relevant determinants of adoption of eHealth are needed in order tounderstand future usage. Aim: To investigate the anticipated psychosocial impact of presentand future eHealth services and discuss how psychosocial factors can impact the readiness foreHealth services among older Swedes and reflect upon instruments for measuring eHealth acceptance.Method: The Psychosocial Impact of Assistive Device Scale (PIADS) measured the psychosocialimpact of eHealth services as illustrated in pictures of a set of events of eHealth services that mayreasonably occur in the present and the future. The PIADS scale and the scenarios were administeredvia a randomly selected sample from the Swedish population aged 55–105. Results and Discussion:Older Swedes have, from a psychosocial perspective, positive expectations regarding eHealth services.The PIADS scale could be a useful supplement to acceptance measurements in the context of eHealth.Using animated illustrations to depict eHealth services, together with the PIADS scale, can generatefindings that are generalizable across technologies. The dimensions adaptability, competence andself-esteem could be relevant determinants of adoption of eHealth.
