Keywords:Citizen survey, Health Information Technology, Digital health, Digital data, eHealth
AbstractAn increasing number of citizens with multiple chronic conditions and technological innovations enabling new types of treatments pressure the Danish healthcare sector economically. The solution so far has been increased patient responsibility and the application of digital healthcare solutions. This longitudinal study examines how Danish citizens between 2013-2021 interact with Health Information Technology (HIT) and digital data. Results show that the Danes' use of HIT and digital data has increased over the period. Additionally, the numbers reveal that education, gender, age and chronic conditions influence how HIT and digital health data are used, which is relevant from a health inequity perspective.
