Abstract

The development of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) has encouraged the introduction of many innovations in healthcare services, including a new form of health management. This study applies the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) in order to explain e-health use behavior to prevent Covid19. The research has used an internet based-survey in which 180 people took part. The results indicate that the attitude towards behavior, subjective norms as well as perceived control increase the intention to use e-health to prevent against Covid-19.
