Description The implementation of information- communication technologies in the health sector (i.e., eHealth) is on the rise both in Europe and globally. However, physicians in the Czech Republic remain sceptical about eHealth and related tools. Also, Czech eHealth research is only beginning to investigate research questions that have been studied abroad for some time. The aim of this research was to find out about perceived benefits, barriers or conditions for implementation of eHealth interventions and prevention strategies within the Czech medical practice, using the methodology of deep interviews with a sample of five physicians. The results have shown that physicians often use eHealth technologies to ensure the daily functioning of surgeries in the Czech Republic. However, the implementation of eHealth tools for intervention or prevention purposes in particular would require an empirically validated system available in the Czech language that could be promoted for use among Czech physicians and would come with both expert and technical support.
