Abstract

This study explores the use of models of technology acceptance (TAM and UTAUT) to understand technology adoption and use among healthcare professionals (HCPs) in the clinical area in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Six themes were developed from both models and this generated forty-six specific statements that explore those barriers and motivators to e-health adoption and use in clinical practice. Each HCP ranked each of the statements based on how they agree or disagree with the statement in order to identify a shared perspective using Q-methodology; a methodology that explores subjectivity. Thirty-six HCPs working in the clinical area in SSA participated in the study. Analysis was done using a Q-methodology dedicated software called the PQMethod 2.35. Four perspectives identifying the aspect(s) of the model the HCPs identify to influence their use of technology in their clinical practice.
