[Abstract]: The outcomes of clinical usefulness as a driver of wireless technology for Indian healthcare are reported here. Using both qualitative and quantitative techniques, 30 physicians were interviewed and 200 health professionals were surveyed. The outcomes established that in addition to technology factors, other factors such as clinical factors, administration factors and communication factors play a crucial role in determining the uptake of wireless technology for healthcare. These factors were further validated using a PLS model.
