Abstract

Research has identified a need for the improvement of the health situation in Nigeria. EHealth services are expected to make healthcare service delivery quicker and easier, covering a wider range of people. This research investigates the adoption level of e-Health in Nigerian health institutions, with focus on the use of the Electronic Medical Record (EMR). The SPSS (version 16.0) software was used to measure the variables with respect to the theories proposed and their individual items. For the purpose of this research, the theories adopted include the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) and the Innovation Diffusion Theory. Using the elements of these theories, the research model developed postulated that Perceived Ease of Use (PEU), Perceived Social Influence (PSI) and Relative Advantage (RA) of the technology are what would determine the perceived usefulness (PU) which would in turn determine the intention to use (INT) the technology. Keywords: Adoption, E-Health, Nigeria, TAM.
