Background: New technologies are becoming increasingly important in outpatient care. The willingness of professional carers to use new technologies is often considered to be low, especially where older and female carers are concerned who play a large role in outpatient care. However, reliable data on technology commitment in outpatient care are not yet available for German-speaking countries. Aim: This paper aims to provide insights into the state of technology commitment in outpatient care. Methods: For data collection, the standardised assessment of technology commitment was used, which determines technology readiness via the facets ``technology acceptance'', ``technology competence conviction'' and ``technology control conviction'' (Neyer et al., 2012). A first data collection (2013) concentrated on nursing services in the federal state of Lower Saxony (n = 263), a second data collection (2017) was carried out with a nationwide care service provider (n = 593). Results: For the first time, the results of the present investigations provide differentiated insights into questions of technology commitment in outpatient care in Germany. In particular. there are indications of differences in the willingness to use technology in outpatient care depending on the age group of the interviewees. Conclusion: The introduction of new technologies into the everyday life of caregivers requires demographically sensitive concepts for preparing and supporting the users.
