Mobile Health Apps Use: The Role of Ownership, Health Efficacy and Motivation

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study explored motivation, health efficacy, mobile phone ownership, and demographic elements as factors to help predict use of mobile health apps among college students and the general population. Surveying participants from the Midwest United States, we found that ownership of mobile devices was not a predictor of health app use for both populations and that health efficacy was a predictor of health app use for the general population but not for the student population.
