Background: With the increasing use of technology in recent decades, remote monitoring programs for individuals to use within their homes are becoming more available. Patient adherence to these new technologies requires assessment of general satisfaction with these programs and devices. Although patient satisfaction surveys are commonly used in healthcare, a tool to measure the satisfaction of individuals utilizing a home spirometry device had not been developed. Purpose: To develop a questionnaire to assess lung transplant recipients' overall satisfaction with a home spirometry program at the University of Minnesota. Methods: A four part, 15-item Likert style questionnaire was developed which included the following domains of interest: equipment/technical; personnel/communication; program evaluation; and three open-ended questions. Using the Flesh Kincaid index, readability was determined to be at 6th grade level. Surveys were sent to 50 individuals, the majority of which were 3-5 years post-transplant and were actively participating in the Transplant center's HM program. Results: Forty-three out of 50 individuals responded (86%), over half (56%) were between 51-65 years of age, 23 were male, and most respondents had a high school education (57%) or beyond (40%). The majority of respondents (43%) performed HM several times a week. An intraclass correlation of 0.77 (N=27) verified test-retest reliability. Internal consistency was confirmed with a Cronbach's alpha of 0.925 (N=37) for all questions, 0.843 (N=40) for equipment/technical; 0.803 (N=41) for personnel/communication, and 0.902 (n=41) for program evaluation respectively. Adherence to the HM program was mildly correlated to the survey (correlation=0.33) illustrating construct validity. Conclusion: The survey tool appears to a reliable and valid instrument to assess patient satisfaction to home monitoring intervention.
