This paper focused on broadening users and HAMT technology elite knowledge on the adoption of Hospital Administration Management System Technology base on the amalgamation of Theory of Planned Behavior and Technology Acceptance Model. In regards to this, 236 questionnaires were distributed to health professionals out of which 200 were recouped. The 200 Health Professionals were from different hospitals and clinics for this paper, the makeup of the population sample consist of Nurses, Doctors, and Administrative staff as they form the majority users of HAMT. Every institution needs reliable information or data to operate successfully, it is, therefore, worthwhile to say that information or data on hand has a significant influence on the outcome of treatment of patients. The results of the study fascinatingly demonstrate the significant factors of HAMT adoption and the impact of each delineated element. The outcomes established that the majority of health workers will adopt HAMT base on their Perceived Usefulness, Perceived Ease of Use, Attitude, Subjective Norms and Subjective.
