Telehealth for elderly patients (English)
Abstract [sv]

Med allt fler äldre i samhället ökar belastningen inom vård- och omsorgssektorn. E-hälsa kan bidra till en effektivare vård av äldre med medicinsk information och vårdtjänster via internet samt vårdrelaterad service som utförs via ny teknologi. Syftet med litteraturstudien var att belysa äldres erfarenheter av e-hälsa. Studien genomfördes som en litteraturstudie där tio vetenskapliga artiklar utgjorde underlag. Resultatet visade att e-hälsa kunde skapa empowerment hos den äldre vårdtagaren genom möjligheten att få stanna i sitt hem samtidigt som det gav egenkontroll av sjukdom och hälsa. Det fanns dock en oro hos äldre att e-hälsa skulle ersätta fysisk kontakt och äldre uppfattade att tekniken var komplicerad. E-hälsa kunde öka tillgängligheten av vård men för att den ska fungera optimalt behöver den individanpassas. Äldres erfarenheter av e-hälsa bör ligga till grund för utveckling av lämpligare och bättre e-hälsolösningar. Kunskapen om äldres erfarenheter kan hjälpa sjuksköterskan att implementera e-hälsolösningar på ett bra och effektivt sätt. Genom ökad kunskap om äldres erfarenheter kan e-hälsa bli ett värdefullt verktyg för en bättre och effektivare vård av äldre.

Abstract [en]

Telehealth can contribute to a more effective system of health care for elderly patients through medical information and support given via the Internet as well as health related services initiated through new technology. The aim of the study was to highlight older people's experiences of telehealth. The study was conducted as a literature review in which ten scientific articles provided input and formed the basis. The results showed that telehealth could create empowerment amongst the elderly patients as they would be able to stay at home whilst providing self-monitoring of their health and illness. However, there are concerns among the elderly who believe that telehealth would replace physical contact and many think that the technology is to complex to comprehend. Telehealth could be the solution to increasing the availability of health care, but in order for it to function optimally it needs to be individualized. Older people's experiences with telehealth should be the basis for the development of more appropriate telehealth solutions. Knowledge on older people’s telehealth experiences can help nurses implement solutions in a good and efficient way. By broadening and researching the information on the elderly’s experiences with telehealth it can become a valuable health tool.
