Patients and citizens are experienced in Internet use. Earlier studies have suggest that citizens' interest in electronic healthcare services has increased, and there is a need of healthcare professionals to inform patients and their families about this new format and provide them with guidance. The purpose of this study was to find out how patients accept electronic healthcare services and determine their intention to use them based on their opinions of perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use. A survey (N=150) was carried out at a university hospital before electronic services (e-service) were implemented. Participants were motivated to monitor their wellness based on their previous experiences of using electronic services. Patients were confident about the effectiveness of e-service provision.
