Abstract

Theoretical and practical advances have been made within healthcare informatics. Yet, mainstream research has primarily focused on signs and consequences without consideration to causal factors. Likewise, there is an increase demand for better self-management interventions. This demand resulted from the growing elderly populations with chronic conditions that fail to adhere to self-care routine. Still, most of the Healthcare Informatics interventions have achieved short-term success; while the goal is to engage population towards long-term behavior change. This research aims to shed light on the topic of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) empowerment by building and testing a theoretical-model for building intentions to sustain a healthy behavior. With a trial of 174 responses, we found positive results and a promising approach for Empowerment based on this model.
