What is it about?
This study looks at why Generation Z (Gen-Z), which includes young people, use or don't use personal electronic health records (e-health records). These digital health records are important for managing health information. The study surveyed 1,000 Gen-Z university students and found that social influence plays a big role in getting Gen-Z to use e-health records. It also found that things like how well the system works, how easy it is to use, and how much people know about e-health records affect whether Gen-Z wants to use them. Privacy concerns are a barrier, but if Gen-Z trusts the health system, it helps overcome these worries.
