What is Technology Acceptance Model (TAM)

Handbook of Research on ICTs and Management Systems for Improving Efficiency in Healthcare and Social Care
One of the most frequently employed models for research into new information technology acceptance. The TAM suggests that when users are presented with a new technology, a number of factors determine their decision about how and when they will use it.

An Extension of the Technology Acceptance Model in Hospital-in-the-Home Units

Abstract
The implementation of a Hospital-in-the-Home Unit (HHU) involves the application of technologies adapted to improve quality of care. The aim of this chapter is to develop a model based on the Technology Acceptance Model, which identifies key success factors for the acceptance of technology systems in HHUs. Qualitative research was carried out in the HHU of a Spanish hospital. Interviews were conducted with the HHU team, the hospital nurse manager, and the medical manager. An extended technology acceptance model is derived from the interviews. While organisational triggers such as accessibility, collaboration, confidentiality, training, and security are the main drivers for perceived usefulness and ease of use; individual processes such as unlearning and openness to address the needs of patients are the main enablers for the participation of practitioners. The results shed light on a possible way for healthcare managers to enhance their subordinates’ acceptance of technologies for HHUs.

Dynamics of Mobile Service Adoption
TAM models how users come to accept and use a technology. It distinguishes two concepts. First, the perceived usefulness reflects the expected benefits from using a certain technology. Second, the perceived ease of use reflects pretty much the same thing as the perceived behavioral control in the theory of planned behavior.

Mobile Direct Marketing
The TAM was initially proposed by Davis (1989). It comprises two beliefs, the perceived utilities and the perceived ease of application, which determine attitudes to adopt new technologies. The attitude toward adoption will decide about the adopter’s positive or negative behavior in the future concerning new technology.

Information Culture and Effective Use of Information Tools at Work: Conceptualizing and Measuring Group Adoption
This model posits that a person’s behavioural intention to use a given technology can be predicted by their assessment of “perceived ease of use,” and “perceived usefulness.” Behavioural intention, in turn, can predict actual use. This model has been shown to be robust with a wide range of users and technologies. However, it does not perform well in contexts of group behaviour. See Davis (1989) .

Contemporary Information Systems Alternative Models to TAM: A Theoretical Perspective
Is one of the most widely used theories in IS literature. Two beliefs (perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use) predict attitudes, which in turn influence intended use of a technology. This intention then consequently impacts behavior of actual system usage. Perceived usefulness is the degree to which a user thinks a technology would enhance performance or productivity in the workplace. Perceived ease of use is the degree of lack of effort required by the user in adopting a given technology. Perceived ease of use also affects perceived usefulness.
