Abstract

This study explored reactions and perceptions of medical professionals in the use of wireless technology in the Pakistani healthcare setting. 300 professionals were surveyed with 97 survey forms returned. The regression analysis indicates that clinical performance and better quality of services would be the determinants in using wireless technology in Pakistani healthcare. These medical professionals felt that in order to continuously use the technology, training and technical supports are essential. They also felt that the introduction of such a technology would result in the attraction of more practitioners, save time, save effort and provide high quality information. Collectively, these factors, in the opinion of these professionals will reduce inaccuracies in data.
