Adoption and Acceptance of eHealth: Beyond the current state-of-the-art
 
A workshop, held in conjunction with INTERACT 2017 in Mumbai, India www.interactehealth.com 25th - 26th September, 2017

Workshop topic:
The main approach taken in adoption and acceptance studies of interactive health technologies mainly follows a quantitative approach, often based on theoretical approaches such as the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) or the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT). Such studies mostly focus on a few, abstract factors, such as ease of use or perceived usefulness presuming a linear process of acceptance, but fail to give an in-depth overview of what exactly speeds up adoption and acceptance within a real-life context, also on the long term. In all, studies that show how different types of users with different needs and expectations make use of these technologies in specific healthcare contexts are crucial to inform the design of new interactive health technologies and their implementation strategies. The objective of this workshop is to discuss where we are today on the adoption and acceptance of interactive health technologies and from this position, define a roadmap to push this field forward.
 
Call for papers:
The aim of this one-day workshop is to bring together researchers from both industry and academia to discuss best practices as well as pitfalls of adoption and acceptance of interactive technologies in healthcare and to provide the Interact community with guidelines to inform future developments and implementation of their interactive health systems. We welcome multi-disciplinary contributions from the many disciplines and approaches that intersect with interactive health technologies (e.g. engineering, computer sciences, (interactive) design, sociology, anthropology, psychology, neurosciences, cognitive sciences, communication science, cultural studies, nursing, fine and media arts, and law, etc.). You are welcome to submit a paper on one of the following topics:
* Adoption and acceptance studies of interactive health technologies that expand upon TAM and UTAUT
* Studies of adoption and acceptance of interactive health technologies that are based on different models than TAM or UTAUT (e.g., the Task-Technology Fit Model)
* Qualitative studies of adoption and acceptance of interactive health technologies
* Longitudinal studies of adoption and acceptance of interactive health technologies
* Studies that focus on a specific factor that affects adoption or acceptance of interactive health technologies (e.g., trust, privacy, control, aesthetics)
* Position papers on the topic of adoption and acceptance of interactive health technologies
 
Paper format:
We welcome prospective participants to submit extended abstracts (max. 4 pages) covering any relevant topic (related to the problem statement on the homepage) addressing the adoption and acceptance of interactive health technologies. In addition to papers presenting empirical research, we also welcome papers about new  theoretical perspectives, new methodological challenges, and design challenges related to interactive health technologies. The manuscripts should use the conference format. Please submit a PDF copy of your manuscript to [log in to unmask] and [log in to unmask]
