Abstract:The increased chronic disease prevalence requires a systematic approach and a good organization of care. It is proven that telemedicine can contribute to these requirements. Telerevalidatie.nl is a telemedicine application that aims at increasing access to healthcare for chronic ill patients, and saving a great deal of traveling time and expenses through self-management of the disease at home. In order to evaluate Telerevalidatie.nl and to examine the intention of healthcare professionals to continue using telemedicine applications after the first implementation phase, interviews were conducted with the rehabilitation professionals involved in this implementation phase. The interview protocol was based on the constructs of the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) model, as the best fitted one for this research. The results indicated that almost all participating rehabilitation professionals were very positive about the concept of Telerevalidatie.nl and had the intention to continue using it, on the condition that some improvements will be made regarding the usefulness, the user-friendliness, the applicability and the compatibility of the application.
