The purpose of this analysis argues that the technology acceptance model and the theory of task technology fit offer justification for the introduction and integration of ehealth web sites (i.e., WebMd.com) into nursing home care facility operations in the United States and abroad. The driving force behind this study concerns the significant care deficiencies in nursing homes, and how ehealth can ameliorate these conditions. Ehealth has never been a focus of study in nursing homes. Examining logistics relating to nursing homes and their residents may reveal which nursing homes would benefit from integrating ehealth as a referential resource.
