The idea of using personal digital assistance (PDA) in the healthcare industry has been sparsely explored from the viewpoint of an emerging market like Malaysia. Since the potential benefits of adopting PDA are immense, this study aims to investigate the intention of medical professionals to adopt PDA in their daily work. Interestingly, only personal innovativeness in technology (PIIT) was found to be insignificant in this study. The study is important, as it provides vital information not only for hospital management but also for system developers and even government agencies when devising their corporate and marketing strategies.
