ADOPTION BEHAVIOR TOWARDS MHEALTH BY PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIANS (PCP) IN HEALTH CENTRE AT THE DISTRICT LEVEL IN INDONESIA

Julius JILLBERT

Abstract


An effort to identify needs from Primary Care Physicians (PCP), which has the greatest impact on their receptivity to use mHealth in making a clinical decision, becomes a focus of this paper, as the smartphone, PDA, and cell phones generally are cheaper and easy to handle than other devices aside from their limited features. Findings from the empirical studies suggest that several factors can be categorized as catalysts and inhibitor in the adoption of mHealth in the health centre. One of the major barriers to mHealth adoption that addresses throughout this paper from the results of this survey is the lack of needed infrastructure.
