Our team members Martina Smahelova, Lenka Knapova and Steriany Elavsky together with Adam Klocek published an article "GPs’ perspectives on eHealth use in the Czech Republic: a cross-sectional mixed-design survey study" in the BJGP Open.
Digitalisation of health services is among the top priorities of the European Union (EU), yet take-up of eHealth tools is slower in some EU countries than others. Using a cross-sectional, mixed-design survey, this study aims to evaluate the use of information communication technology (ICT) and eHealth tools by Czech GPs, to elucidate their motivation and barriers to the adoption of eHealth technologies. Results suggets that younger GPs who own their practice are keener to use eHealth tools but many GPs are wary about mobile technologies that soak up time when face-to-face consultations are needed.

Online on the phone: Czech children’s internet use
A survey of 2,825 Czech children showed that 84% access the internet daily using their mobile phones and only 45% use a computer. Even the youngest children aged 9 to 10 years use predominantly their phones to go online (64% use it daily), while 29% of all children say that they are online on their mobile ‘almost all the time’. How does this affect their experiences and exposure to risk?
