Abstract: Objective: This is a study of Information Technology (IT) adoption among doctors in Singapore. Method: A quantitative survey was conducted among 6138 Singapore doctors. It gave an overview of the level of IT adoption. A focus group session was conducted which yielded deeper insights into why doctors adopt IT or otherwise. A qualitative survey reported which Medical-IT applications were supported. Results: IT adoption among Singapore doctors is high. Top uses are email, Internet and recording of patients' medical information. Focus group results indicated there are significant push and pull factors to IT adoption. The qualitative survey explored Medical-IT specific applications deeply. Doctors support Online CME, clinical research aided by information systems and Electronic Medical Records. They do not support Telemedicine and Telesurgery. Doctors' future IT needs were highlighted.Given these results, recommendations are made to assist doctors in embracing IT and fulfill doctors' future IT needs.
