The factors that are identified as drivers of adoption of wireless technology in the Indian healthcare sector are
reported here. The study using both qualitative and quantitative techniques, in which 30 physicians were
interviewed and 300 health professionals were surveyed (using a questionnaire) established that in addition to
technology factors, other factors such as clinical factors, administration factors and communication factors play
key roles in the technology adoption in healthcare. The study also reports new factors of adoption that are
particularly relevant to Indian healthcare.
