The adoption of Information Technology (IT) has remained a point of enthusiasm for the last couple of decades. The Technology Acceptance Models such as TAM are used to predict users’ behaviours. Studies on the ability to anticipate people's acceptance with regard to health information system (HIS) are lacking. This study focuses on the “Perceived Ease of USE (PEOU)” and the “Perceived Usefulness (PU)” of the HIS of healthcare professionals in Pakistan.

Consequently, this study used model and proposed that the HIS acceptance is determined by 5 main constructs, namely, “behavioural intention”, “attitude, perceived usefulness”, “perceived ease of use” and “technology self-efficacy”.
