Abstract

The Internet of Things (IoT) provide new opportunities for healthcare to enhance the quality of life and safety of mental-health patients. However, only limited studies explore how IoT can be adopted to this end, and this study tries to fill this particular gap. This research includes a literature reviewand five cases with semi-constructed interviews that position the use and adoption of IoT applications in Dutch mental healthcare. This paper presents an explorative, interpretative, and mainly qualita- tive multiple case study. The outcomes show that privacy, security, knowledge of new technology, and opposition from traditional medical professionals are essen- tial factors that currently reduce the acceptance of IoT in mental healthcare and lead to low IoT use.
