Abstract The use of recent developments in the digital technologies and their implications to the healthcare industry has increased in the 21st century. The use of wireless handheld devices is on the rise in almost every industry and healthcare is not an exception. However, due to the higher level of risk associated with the healthcare industry, adoption of such technologies in the healthcare domain needs to be studied carefully and understood thoroughly. This research study was conducted to understand the determinants for the adoption of latest digital innovation in the healthcare environment. A Mixed methodology was adopted to collect data from India, Pakistan and Australia. The research found that there were a number of external and internal factors that can influene the implementations of such technologies in a healthcare setting. These factors have been identified in this research paper. The finding of this research is limited to only three contexts and further research is needed to generalize the finding of this research.
