The use of technology to monitor and manage clients in the health care field is available in many forms and is growing rapidly. However, few studies have been conducted to determine the acceptability, benefits, and possible barriers as perceived by the clients involved in the use of that technology. The purpose of this study in progress is to discover the perceptions about ease of use, efficacy of the intervention, and difficulties encountered by patients who have used an in-home telehealth communication device. Participants have been selected from a previous study in which half of the subjects were asked to use a telehealth communication device, specifically the Health Buddy, as one intervention within the study. Data collection is being completed through use of focus group discussions and individual interviews. The comparative method of analysis will be employed to answer the research questions. Twenty-one percent of subjects using a Health Buddy in a previous study asked to withdraw from the study prior to completion of the Health Buddy content. Devices such as the Health Buddy hold great potential for monitoring, educating, and timely intervention for chronic health care problems. However, the technology must be acceptable to the intended population. The apparent need for over sampling to accommodate drop-outs that may be related to the technology add cost and burden to the research study. It is imperative to understand the patient perspective of using the Health Buddy technology to facilitate ease of use and acceptability in future studies and in practice.
