This report discusses patient acceptance of a device called Health Buddy™. Placed in the home of a chronically ill patient, this device enables two-way communication between the patient and a care provider in a case management program. Because communication occurs via Health Buddy when the patient responds to a short automated survey of perhaps a dozen questions, the patient's acceptance of Health Buddy and his or her willingness to use it daily is crucial to its success.
