ABSTRACT

In this research we encountered several factors against the implementation of the Information and communication Technologies in our country, the most prominets of them were: cultural, economic, and social idiosyncrasies. We still don’t accept ICT in the health system, and also we don’t trust on free or paid applications to control or to get a guidance for any disease, and one of the main factors contributing for that, its merely cultural. In Mexico we rely on face-to face contact with the doctors as this give us the sensation of safety and trust. Nowadays with all the advances in technology and the trends in these new generations, we believe that this will have a huge change in a few years due to the globalization, as we implement information and health advances from other countries to our local context. On the other hand, Mexico’s population pyramid its perceived on continuos change, with an increase in older population and a shrink of birth rates, that give us new challenges to the health system. The most demanded and reliable applications used by the population in Mexico were for excercise planning, control of calories and for heart rhythm measurement. In this research the results showed that the Mexican population would be willing to receive first level health care with some support from the doctors
