Background: Increasing volume of day surgery and a paradigm shift in patient care, has led to increased involvement of patients in the course of treatment, which requires good information, and good communication between the patient and health professionals. National health policy guidelines are suggesting that Internet-based services may be a key element to meet this need. For patients to use e-health solutions though, there must be an intention of use. Aim: The aim of this study was to explore what factors patients believe may affect their intention to use a service for digital post-operative follow-up after elective surgery. Sample and method: An interview guide was constructed with UTAUT 2 (Unified theory of acceptance and use of technology) and eHEALS (eHealth Literacy Scale) as frameworks. Eleven semi-structured interviews were conducted during the period January-February 2020. Data were analyzed in NvivoÒ, and both direct content analysis, and inductive content analysis were performed. The informants were patients who had underwent elective surgery during the last three months at the time of the interview.
