Sociotechnical Challenges of eHealth Technology for Patient Self-management: A Systematic Review

Stefan Hochwarter

Abstract

Ageing of society and increase of time spent with chronic conditions challenge the traditional long-term care model. Assistive technology and eHealth are seen to play an important role when addressing these challenges. One prominent example are patient self-management systems. These systems not only transform the way patients with chronic conditions interact with the healthcare system, but also change work practices of care providers. This literature review addresses sociotechnical challenges of eHealth technologies with a strong collaborative component. As a result, four themes are identified and discussed.
