Health Care IT
Health challenges present arguably the most significant barrier to sustainable global development. The introduction of ICT inhealthcare, especially the application of mobile communications, has created the potential to transform healthcare delivery bymaking it more accessible, affordable and effective across the developing world. However, current research into theassessment of mHealth from the perspective of developing countries particularly with community Health workers (CHWs) asprimary users continues to be limited. The aim of this study is to analyze the contribution of mHealth in enhancing theperformance of the health workers and its alignment with existing workflows to guide its utilization. The proposed researchtakes into account this consideration and aims to examine the task-technology alignment of mHealth for CHWs drawing uponthe task technology fit as the theoretical foundation.
