Description

The inpatient setting is often a missed opportunity for the introduction of technology to promote health using behavioral techniques. Nurses are stakeholders in the implementation of technology for patients in the inpatient setting and are essential for the determination of feasibility and relevance. The objective of this study was to identify facilitators and barriers for introduction of health-related patient technology, and specifically the appropriateness of mobile health (mHealth) technology in the hospital setting as identified by nurse leaders and staff. Methods of formative evaluation included nurse leader and staff semi-structured interviews and qualitative analysis. Nurses are comfortable with patients using mHealth technology in the inpatient setting. Facilitators for the introduction of technology to hospitalized patients were identified. Based on the formative evaluation findings, we developed an Implementation Program for mHealth technology introduction in the inpatient setting.
