DO CONSTRUCTS OF TECHNOLOGY ACCEPTANCE MODEL PREDICT THE ICT APPROPRIATION BY PHYSICIANS AND NURSES IN HEALTHCARE PUBLIC CENTRES IN AGADIR, SOUTH OF MOROCCO?

Az-Eddine Bennani, Rachid Oumlil

Abstract

This communication explores the constructs of Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and examines if they do predict the Information and communication technology (ICT) appropriation by physicians and nurses working in healthcare public centers in Agadir City, South of Morocco. The study revealed that Attitude, Perceived Ease of Use (PEOU) and Perceived Usefulness (PU) influence positively the intention of ICT appropriation. Also Perceived Usefulness is still to be a major determinant of the intention of ICT appropriation by these practitioners.
