Models for the acceptance of tele-care solutions: Intention vs behaviour

  title={Models for the acceptance of tele-care solutions: Intention vs behaviour},
  author={D. Bouwhuis and Lydia M. J. Meesters and A. Sponselee},

While cost considerations and scarcity of nursing staff are strong motivators for tele-care, the actual effectiveness and acceptance of tele-care systems still falls short of expectations with an attrition rate often higher than 50%. As standard models of technology acceptance are poor predictors of… Expand
