Abstract

It is believed that IT applications can improve quality, reliability, efficiency, sustainability, effectiveness and research environment in healthcare industry. This study addresses the effects of technology anxiety and resistance to change on acceptance of newly introduced breast tumor registry system (BTRS) in Turkey. It is an electronic health recording (EHR) especially design for breast tumor. As the deployment of this system is not a legal obligation, its spread and utilization depend on its acceptance. A modified Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) is introduced with the aim of explaining effects of aforementioned factors role in acceptance of this technology. PLS-SEM is used in model testing. Resistance to change appeared as insignificant whereas technology anxiety is a significant role player in adoption.
