Abstract

The study reviews and attempts to identify the Information Culture factors that impact the users' attitudes toward the adoption of Health Information System (HIS) in developing counties. It is based on a review and a critical analysis of previous research related to the adoption of HIS, especially in developing countries. The study discovered Information Culture related adoption factors: Information Need, Compatibility, Access to Health Information Resources, Information Sharing, Self-efficacy, Attitudes and Awareness towards the importance of HIS. These factors are known to effect the adoption of HIS in developing countries. All these factors suit the context of the current study. Thus, the review outlines the details of each factor and its relevance to the research issue. The outcome of the review-based study revealed that such crucial factors co-exist in two domain areas; Information Culture and HIS adoption.
