It contains managerial, cultural, functional, technical, organizational, political and human factors relating to smart hospital based on internet of things. The questionnaire was completed by all 230 physicians working at university hospitals. Validity of the questionnaire was determined using content validity and its reliability was determined by test-retest method with 95% correlation coefficient. Data were analyzed by SPSS statistical software, using descriptive statistics as well as t-test and analysis of variance.
In this study, 149 (79.5%) males and 38 (20.5%) females participated. Based on the physicians’ viewpoints, percentage of agreement for managerial, cultural and organizational factors in creating a smart hospital was higher than other studied factors.
