Abstract

This chapter presents a systematic mapping of studies that investigated the adoption of IoT-based healthcare services in developing countries. Specifically, this chapter investigates the current drivers and challenges of the adoption of IoT-based healthcare services in developing countries. It further investigates technology acceptance models/theories that have been used in IoT-based healthcare research in developing countries. The chapter suggests that there is a need to undertake more studies on IoT-based healthcare services in developing countries that are anchored on a theoretical foundation to enhance the understanding of the drivers and inhibitors of the adoption of such services. Such understanding will help devise strategies that could stimulate the adoption and use of IoT-based healthcare services in developing countries.
