  Nowadays, the technology utilization and adoption considered as one of the trend researches in different contexts. In order to achieve successful utilization, a number of factors may be taken into consideration from different perspectives depending on the real needs in the context of usage. Healthcare context still needing the utilization of new trend technologies such as utilizing cloud computing services to handle different tasks in this domain. The cloud services can offer a reliable solution to manage, maintain and retrieve health records within hospitals as well as to share the activities among hospitals and healthcare specialists. This allows the healthcare professionals to access, manage and monitor patient’s health status anywhere at anytime. In order to make sure to get the full benefits of the new services, a prior examination in the context of usage must be applied to examine the current needs and the suitability of the technology. Therefore, the researchers in the present study trying to provide the suitable factors/domains used in the context of technology utilization in healthcare sector. A literature survey has carried out to check the suitability of the organizational structure and system settings and their impact on the healthcare member’s perception to utilize cloud health information systems. A total of 75 previous studies that used the proposed domains in different contexts has been included. Along with that, the researchers found that the studies in the context of technology utilization usually used three theories to combine the relationship between the above-mentioned domains. These theories are the organization theory, diffusion of innovation theory and the theory of reasoned action. Finally, the association between domains and the theories have been established.

  It is commonly perceived that the value of healthcare services constantly increases in developing and developed countries to which healthcare providers are currently becoming more challenging. Consequently, taking on advanced health information systems to reduce healthcare cost and improve overall health quality is imminent in countries that are still in service utilization stage like Iraq. This as a result, led researchers to consider the potential of cloud computing as a prominent technological solution for providing the necessary platform for health information technology services to be transformed and managed over the internet. This allows the healthcare professionals to access, manage and retrieve patient’s health records in a reliable and flexible way. However, cloud computing has also introduced a set of challenges in healthcare contexts which varied from one country to another depending on its current technological state and resources. The researchers shed light on these challenges in the present study by surveying the literature about the current antecedents that may face the Iraqi health sector to utilize cloud health information systems. The literature showed that using other models is not recommended as it implies different needs that make it difficult to fit certain cultural or geographical conditions as it in Iraq. As a result, this research proposed a model of utilizing cloud health information systems in Iraq. The organizational structure and system factors have been investigated as the main antecedents that may affect the perception of the healthcare professionals (individuals) towards utilizing cloud services in their hospitals.
