Interventions to improve health outcomes are increasingly designed with electronic and Internet-based. Despite a growing number of studies using digital interventions, little information exists about user satisfaction this method. This study is part of a larger study utilizing a website and personal digital assistant (PDA) to promote self-management and improve healthy behaviors. The purpose of this descriptive study was to evaluate women's satisfaction with use of a digital intervention designed to promote bone health using quantitative instruments and content analysis of open-ended questions. A convenience sample of 145 healthy women between the ages of 40 and 60 responding to public and private advertisements were enrolled if they met inclusion criteria consisting of inadequate daily calcium intake, a history negative for osteoporosis, and no report of current bone-remodeling medication use. Participants were randomly assigned to the printed materials or digital intervention group. Participants in the digital group are the focus of this study. Women's ages in this group averaged 50.4 years (N=48, SD 5.538), were largely Caucasian (N=38, 79.2%), and most were married (N=32, 66.7%). Scores of the Website and PDA Satisfaction Questionnaires (Cronbach's alpha coefficients of .932 and .963) ranged from 1 (Strongly Agree) to 7 (Strongly Disagree). Mean scores for the website and PDA were 2.60 (SD 1.35) and 2.40 (SD 1.28) respectively. Knowledge scores at T1 had a reported mean of 67.2% correct (SD 17.91), while knowledge at T2 increased to 75.8% correct (SD 16.8). Using a content analysis process, data from open-ended questions were categorized into 7 general categories with the "Design" category having the highest number of comments. Findings indicate that women were satisfied with the digital intervention, which was reflected in knowledge gained and self-efficacy improvement over the intervention period, as well as personal report through written comments and satisfaction scale tools. This study presents an analysis of user satisfaction with interventions to enhance self-management; opportunities to improve tailored digital interventions have been elucidated from participants' experiences and are applicable to future intervention designs.
