AbstractFast-growing interest in telemedicine and increased investment in its enabling technology have made physician technology acceptance a growing concern for development and management of telemedicine. At the dawn of large-scale technology implementation by health care organizations around the globe, it is essential to understand physicians' attitudes toward use of telemedicine technology and their intention to use the technology. In this study, we used Theory of Planned Behavior to investigate technology acceptance among physicians who practiced in public tertiary hospitals in Hong Kong. Our data supported the investigated theory and the results suggest that attitude and perceived behavioral control are crucial to physician technology acceptance. Overall, physicians showed positive attitudes toward use of telemedicine technology and exhibited moderate intention to use the technology, primarily for clinical purposes. Implications for development and management of telemedicine also are discussed.
