Abstract

As the use of IT for health management increases, digital health literacy becomes an important factor. Based on semi-structured interviews, this study presents experts’ perceptions about patients’ abilities to use digital health technologies for health management purposes and their perspectives on the importance of digital health literacy. This sociologically inspired paper will contribute with insights and a multidimensional perspective on the processes of digital health management (field), the importance of patient’s abilities (capital) in improving their health (habitus) from the expert’s perspectives.
