  • Pamela Whitten (a1), Bree Holtz (a1) and Lianh Nguyen (a1)

Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine organizational characteristics evident in successful telemedicine programs. The study proposed four research questions to identify the key organizational characteristics for successful telemedicine programs.

Methods: Data were collected through an online survey using modified unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT) and organizational change readiness (ORC) validated assessments.

Results: Using the UTAUT instrument and the ORC assessment, themes of successful telemedicine programs emerged. Overarching themes of successful programs included being formally structured, forward thinking, seeking to improve the quality of patient care, and being financially stable.

Conclusions: This research provides a data-driven understanding of organizational issues that serve to maximize a telemedicine program's ability to achieve the overall goals and mission of a healthcare organization.
