Abstract:There are many developments in the Dutch healthcare, diseases are better treatable and people are getting older. This causes new solutions for delivering care. One of the solutions to deal with the increasing demand for healthcare is telemedicine. Telemedicine is the delivery of care on a distance by using communication technologies. But telemedicine is not widely adopted yet. Important stakeholders for the use of telemedicine in the healthcare setting are the healthcare professionals. This research focusses on the facilitators and barriers that exist within the choice for the use (or not) of telemedicine.
