A vast range of highly specific healthcare duties and services are supported by information technology. As a result, it’s critical to comprehend the aspects that influence healthcare professionals’ acceptance of this technology. Physicians are important healthcare professionals and among the most frequent users of hospital information systems. When it comes to determining the performance of hospital information systems, their acceptance is critical.
