Abstract

About 110 million American adults are looking for health information and services on the Internet. Identification of the factors influencing healthcare consumers 1/4 technology acceptance is requisite to understanding their acceptance and usage behavior of online health information and related services. The purpose of this article is to describe the development of the Information and Communication Technology Acceptance Model (ICTAM). From the literature reviewed, ICTAM was developed with emphasis on integrating multidisciplinary perspectives from divergent frameworks and empirical findings into a unified model with regard to healthcare consumers 1/4 acceptance and usage behavior of information and services on the Internet.
