Abstract

Despite the importance of the information culture, little is known about the influence of information culture on the adoption of information systems (IS) among employees in public health sector of developing countries. This research explores the influence of information culture factors on employees' behavioural intention to adopt IS. Information culture factors have been suggested as important predictors of IS adoption. Quantitative structured questionnaire was administered to 312 employees in public health sectors of Yemen. SPSS and structural equation modelling (SEM) were used for data analysis and evaluation of the research model. The findings revealed that self-efficacy, social influence, performance expectancy and perceived access significantly influence employees' intention to adopt IS. However, perceived need, perceived information sharing, and effort expectancy influence attitude significantly which, in turn, influences their behavioural intention. In addition, perceived awareness negatively influences behavioural intention. Moreover, facilitating conditions and effort expectancy did not have any significant influence on employees' behavioural intention.
