Tittel

Implementing telemedicine services in Northern Norway: Barriers and facilitators

Sammendrag

Telemedicine is not simply a technology - it also involves processes. The use of telemedicine is influenced by many factors. Our intention was to examine what conditions promote the use of telemedicine between general practitioners (GPs) and hospitals. Qualitative interviews were undertaken with 16 GPs in northern Norway. The extent to which GPs were using the services was limited, although some used them fairly frequently. The most widely used service was teledermatology. The GPs saw advantages of the services in general and saw clear benefits for their patients. The services were considered to be time-consuming, and the lack of adequate government remuneration for the time involved in teleconsultations was seen as a barrier to their use. The GPs focused on their own ability to handle new technology and expressed a need to practise more.
