Abstract

This study focuses on the elderly patients living in remote areas of central Taiwan and surveyed their experience of telecare system since medication safety for elderly patients is an important issue on their lives and safety. We adopted the questionnaire survey for data collection, and examined our hypotheses by applying the structural equation modeling (SEM) method to validate the model. The results show that person-centered caring, communication, perceived ease of use, and perceived usefulness are key aspects affecting elderly use intention of telecare system. The result can help medical institutions construct medication safety mechanisms.
