Abstract: In recent years, the potential use of mobile devices has significantly positively impacted healthcare globally. Despite global claims of widespread use of mobile devices in healthcare, its adoption in the Australian healthcare context is slow. Limited research is available on slow adoption of mobile devices in the Australian healthcare context. Therefore, this chapter is designed to investigate the factors influencing adoption of mobile devices from healthcare professionals' perspective and develop a health specific conceptual framework. The influential factors for the adoption of mobile devices in the Australian health context may be intention, individual readiness, advantages, safety issues, features, self-efficacy, complexity, training, compatibility, social influences, age and gender.
