The factors are delineated from prior literature and theories of individual traits and adoption characteristics, technology acceptance and health belief.Design/methodology/approachData from 409 respondents were collected from Indian participants through a questionnaire survey. The construct “use intention” was measured using individual traits to mobile services, subjective norm, health consciousness, awareness and perceived usefulness, and the model was tested.FindingsThe study found that mobile health technology and the applications awareness and personal innovativeness influence intention to use.Originality/valuePrevious studies have often looked at technology adoption and acceptance models separately and are less adequately discussed in the Indian context. The components that determine mobile health technology and the applications’ acceptance by literature and theories of individual traits and adoption characteristics, technology acceptance and health beliefs were also inadequately discussed.
