1. Introduction Hospitals in Thailand are now focusing on the leverage of information systems and information within the hospitals as it becomes one of the most important things to strengthen hospital capability. Integrated information systems are capable of dealing with clinical and financial management [1]. The hospital uses the Information Management (IT) technology to apply with the regulations and standards of the hospital quality assurance system. The use of hospital information system (HIS) to help manage the general hospital, such as patient records. Medical Device Management, track reports and medical decisions Data retention is important [2]. Hospitals focus on the use of information technology.

The technology applied to the service. It is necessary to adjust the system to work with the information system to enhance the service. Along with the development of personnel to have knowledge of information technology. To be able to apply knowledge to support the system to ensure that the information technology system is stable, reliable and secure. Competing with the world’s leading hospital systems. However, despite there being many previous researches which have added to the hospital information system, it has been established the most direct factor in the studies has been The Acceptance Model of Hospital Information Systems. This paper is study, the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) is use to explore the factors that influence user to accept hospital information system in Thailand. Integration with Task Technology Fit Model (TTF) and Innovation factor explains the variance of user acceptance.

Within the TAM, perceived usefulness acts as an important factor, Perceived usefulness impact on attitude and on intention, and aids progress of implementation [12]. This model has the power to explain improvements, interesting more than model other the past. Venkatesh et al. revised the original TAM model into TAM2 also proposes that subjective norm will have no significant direct effect on intention to use when system use is perceived to be voluntary [f]. While TAM2 focused on identifying determinants of perceived usefulness and moderation variables, TAM3 Focus on the interventions that can affect the acceptance and use of IT in an Organization [13].
The Technology acceptance model (TAM2) is frequently accepted not only in the hospital information system acceptance research as mentioned above, but also in the acceptance and use of other information systems. TAM further suggests two beliefs: perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use are instrumental in explaining the variance in user’s intention. The model is show in Fig.
