Abstract

This paper reports on a case study of adoption of a contained nomadic information environment, exemplified by the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) to keep track of hospital patients. The technology, organization, and environment (TOE) framework is applied to gain insights concerning contextual influences on the adoption of patient tracking RFID, including some RFID-specific issues. The results of this study provide insights to health care organizations embarking on RFID. The resultant model is a step towards developing a theory of adoption of contained nomadic information environments, of which RFID is one instance.
