Abstract:Background. In earlier research the ‘Personal Involvement Inventory’ (PII) was used to measure the relevance of an product for the stakeholder. Based on this the extent of involvement and the tendency to use the product was charted. This is important because of the impact of the involvement on the effectivity of an intervention. Goal. This study was aimed at testing whether the PII is a suitable method to measure the involvement towards an idea of stakeholders during the development process of an eHealth technology. 6 ideas of a prospective virtual reality technology were compared to detect differences between them. Method. 146 participants took part in this study. An online questionnaire was used to gather quantitative and qualitative data about the ideas for an eHealth technology. This questionnaire included the PII as well as a number of open questions. Then different analyses were conducted: reliability analysis, factor analysis, ANOVA’s to measure the differences between groups and ideas, correlation analysis and qualitative analysis of the open questions. Results. This study implies an excellent reliability with an α of .94 and a good inter-item correlation. Furthermore a one-factor structure was found. The ANOVA’s show a significant difference between the groups, but no difference between the different ideas. Patients scored significantly lower than therapists and others on the PII. The results of the correlation analysis suggest that there is a moderate correlation between the grade and the mean score of the PII, but that they do not measure the same construct. The qualitative analysis indicates a difference between the ideas. Additionally it seems that there was more positive involvement if the answer of the participants was entirely more positive. Conclusion. Based on the results of this research, it can be concluded that the PII is a reliable instrument. In this study it was not possible to measure small differences between ideas. However it is not clear whether it is based on the quality of the PII or if it can be explained by external factors. Additional research must be conducted to specify what the PII is measuring and what the added value of the PII is for the development process of an eHealth technology.
