Abstract

Recently intelligent physical robots have received considerable attention of practitioners and academics in the healthcare field. Although studies have investigated the adoption of intelligent physical robots in different healthcare contexts, prior research has mainly investigated the adoption of intelligent physical robots based on the factors related to either technology, organizations, or business environments, few studies have investigated the adoption of intelligent physical robots from the combined view of the technology-organization-environment (TOE) view in the context of hospitals. To address the research gap, this study used the TOE framework to investigate what technology, organizational, and environmental factors affect intelligent physical robot use. The proposed model will be validated with data collected via questionnaires in the hospital context. The research is expected to enrich the literature on intelligent physical robot adoption by exploring the determinants of intelligent physical robot adoption from the integrated view of TOE at the organizational level.
