Ammar Wisam Abdulzhraa Altaher


Abstract: The purpose of this research paper is to investigate the adoption of Telemedcine in the Health Care system of Iraq. It explores the relationship between the various variables tested and to propose strategies for adoption and its impact for the strategic Health care Management System implementation in Iraqi Health Care sector. This paper was designed and constructed with the aim of exploring relationships between the dependent variable (adoption of Telemedcine in Health care system of Iraq) and the independent variables (Easy to Use, Usefulness, Efficiency and Quality) researched and then testing the results using Spearmans correlation matrix and multiple regression analysis. From the statistical tests conducted on the research variables and the results gotten it was found out that a significant positive relationship exists between each of the independent variables (Easy to Use, Usefulness, Efficiency and Quality) and the dependent variable (adoption of Telemedcine in Health care system of Iraq) and this was tested by means of a Spearmans correlation Matrix. The Spearmans correlation coefficient (r) for the Independent Variables (Ease of Use, Usefulness, Efficiency and Quality) equals to 0.523, 0.702, 0.629 and 0.715 respectively which showed that a strong positive correlation exists between each of the independent variables (Ease of Use, Usefulness, Efficiency and Quality) and the dependent variable (adoption of telemedicine in Iraq Health care System).
