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.
