    Abstract

    Establishing a population technology readiness is essential towards successful adoption of patient-generated health data in developing nations. It is widely accepted that data are numbers in context, i.e. in real-world conditions or a particular context. In this paper, the following question is addressed: which is the appropriate context to create and maintain an
    optimum level of health data technology readiness? To accomplish this, we surveyed 1443 randomly selected residents of Lagos State, Nigeria. Our findings suggest that individuals are positively predisposed towards adopting patient-generated health data. The uniqueness of this study lies on the fact that this is the first of such empirical evidence showing the State residents' propensity to adopt PGHD.
