Wearable computer system (WCS) has the capacity to provide services for patients and healthcare professionals regardless of time or place. Researcher in information systems domain agreed that use of wearable system in hospital could improve quality of care, cost reduction, error reductions, and better information quality. Awareness and use of information communication technologies (ICT) are on the rise in China and uptake of the wearable technology in hospital is relatively slow. This paper present the adoption model of WCS with data collected from traditional Chinese hospital professionals regarding their opinions and views about the use of wearable system in hospital. The proposed model variables explained 70% of the variance in behavioral intention to use WCS; further study is needed to explore extra significant antecedents of new IT/IS acceptance for WCS. Such as usefulness and outcome issue, system and information quality, limitations of wearable systems; the above may be other interesting factors for implementing wearable healthcare and could be conducted by qualitative research.
