It highlights the roles of training and user participation in the decision‐making process to implement the system as moderating factors. The study examines the current situation in Lebanon and raises the question about the potential imitation of the Lebanese model by China. Practical implications – The outcome of the study could have significant implications on managerial decision‐making in the process of implementing novel technologies in healthcare facilities.
