PURPOSE
The aim of this study was to evaluate the process and outcome of a mobile computerized system for individual home visiting healthcare.
METHODS
A nonequivalent control group non-synchronized design was employed for this study. The newly constructed system was administered to 80 healthcare providers in the experimental group for 8 weeks. Data were analyzed using descriptive analysis, t-test, and ANCOVA with the SPSS 18.0 program.
RESULTS
In the process stage, the difference in the frequency of computerized information usage between the experimental and control groups was significant as 8.88+/-3.20 and 7.08+/-2.92, respectively (t=3.90, p<.001). In the outcome evaluation stage, all kinds of healthy lifestyle such as alcohol use, nutrition, weight management and mental health were not improved.
CONCLUSION
The findings of this study showed that the revised mobile computerized system was an effective device for individual visiting healthcare providers. Further advanced strategies for using this system should be developed and applied in a broad range of community healthcare.
