ABSTRACT:
Education on asthma self-management has shown to be effective in improving asthma control levels and quality of life while reducing exacerbations and healthcare utilization. Many available healthcare smart phone apps could potentially help asthmatics in improving asthma self-management and outcomes. Asma Droid is a new smart phone app intended for asthmatics in Indonesia. It has many contents and features related to asthma self-management, including: asthma education, a list of asthma medications, asthmatic daily journal, peak flow meter, asthma control test, asthma action plan, asthma asked question, and a map of nearest local hospitals or community health centers. This study primarily aimed to explore intention to use Asma Droid app of Indonesian asthmatics using Technology Acceptance Model. The study applied a quantitative descriptive approach and was conducted in July to September 2019 at Yogyakarta Indonesia with 100 participants through a purposive sampling method. To test the hypotheses, the study applied a multiple linear regression analysis. The results of research showed that the calculated F value of study was 31.622 with a Sig. of 0.000, meaning that Perceived Usefulness and Perceived Ease of Use together significantly affected Intention to Use. The study also showed that t-test Sig. value of Perceived Usefulness was 0.000while Perceived Ease of Use was 0.003, meaning that Perceived Usefulness and Perceived Ease of Use each significantly affected Intention to Use. The study concluded that end-users will more easily accept Asma Droid if they feel that the app is easy to use and has benefits for their asthma self-management.
