Social media in healthcare: A theoretical framework

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookConference contribution

Abstract

Social media presents numerous opportunities and benefits for health professionals, consumers and service providers. Despite social media’s growing popularity, the existing information system (IS) and technology adoption theories are relatively untested in the domain of healthcare social media. Extant literature suggests that the underlying factors affecting health professionals’ social media usage and acceptance behaviours are relatively unknown and somewhat ambiguous. Semi-structured interviews with sixteen health professionals were
conducted to uncover the factors impacting on their social media adoption behaviours. The major themes emerging from the interviews were cross matched with the existing technology adoption theories to propose a novel theoretical framework called Healthcare social media usage model (HSMUM). The proposed research model explains the key drivers affecting health professionals’ social media adoption behaviours.
