Abstract

While there are many studies about mHealth with a focus on patients, there has not been sufficient investigation into general practitioners’ (GPs) perspectives. This study aims to examine GPs’ perspective on how mHealth can benefit type 2 diabetes patients, and how practitioners’ digital literacy is related to their willingness to adopt technological healthcare solutions. An online survey of 388 GPs was conducted to measure their digital literacy, perception of mHealth, and their understanding of their role in the management of patient’s diabetes. GPs have an optimistic view of using mHealth in management. There are positive associations between digital literacy, GP’s role in diabetes management, and perceptions about mHealth.
