This study explores the adoption of information technology (IT) and the association between organizational and market factors, and IT adoption in hospitals. Results suggest that a wide range of amounts and types of IT are adopted. Hospitals with higher overall IT adoption adopt strategic IT most often. Hospitals with lower IT adoption adopt administrative IT most often. Results also show hospital IT adoption to be positively associated with hospital size, location, system membership, ownership, and market competition.
