Telemedicine services must rise to the challenge of reach, quality and scalability in order to offer effective healthcare services and specialists access to the homes of hundreds of millions of people in India. Increasing rollout of 5G networks provide an unprecedented opportunity to healthcare service providers to offer near real-time, high-quality and interactive telemedicine services. In this research-in-progress paper, leveraging on the technology–organization–environment (TOE) framework, we propose various factors that influence the adoption intention of 5G for Telemedicine from an organizational perspective. Next, we intend to test the theorized relationships via a field survey of relevant stakeholders and domain experts. Through this study, we will offer deeper understanding into the TOE framework for the adoption of 5G for Telemedicine. Further, on the practical front, the study will help the healthcare service providers and partners to strategize and focus on specific factors to implement Telemedicine services leveraging 5G effectively.
