The international health community strongly endorses public and patient involvement in healthcare (Charles & DeMaio, 1993; Department Health, 1999; Health Canada, 2000, Neuwelt, 2012). Advances in technology and evolving health legislation have driven the rise of health management applications, or mhealth (Zapata et al., 2015). These mhealth apps facilitate greater levels of patient empowerment by providing easy access to relevant health. However, augmented reality driven mhealth apps are under-researched. This study investigates the antecedents of AR-driven mhealth app continuance, drawing upon the TAM model (Davis, 1989) to highlight the relationship between perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, continued use and how these ultimately impact user’s subjective wellbeing (Pyke et al., 2016; Smith & Diekmann, 2017).
