The use of wireless hand held devices is becoming popular in healthcare applications for data management. While the concept is attractive, difficulties encountered by nurses included the small size of the device, problems in fitting current data collection forms into one screen of a handheld device and data entry using the 'garfiti' option. It appears that prior studies, while highlighting the importance of wireless applications in healthcare, failed to ascertain factors that determine the adoption of these applications in hopitals. This study conducted a set of interviews to investigate the factors of adoption of wireless applications by nurses in order to enhace heathcare data management. Preliminary findings of these interviews are presented here.
