Purpose/Objectives: To determine the existence of a relationship between the user's attitude towards adoption of ICT in ehealth . Methodology/Approach: The data of the study was from primary sources which were collected through self administered questionnaires it consisted of both open and closed ended questions. It was a cross sectional survey .This is because the study was concerned about the practice and attitudes towards ICT, across various sections of the Health Sector,while research was aimed at drawing conclusions about the level of e-health adoption and the influence in attitudes towards use of ICT in health research. Finding/Results: The study sought to establish whether the organizations have adopted ICT processes and procedures only 20% of the organization strongly agreed to have procedures while 33% strongly agreed to refer to industry best practice, only 13% of the respondents strongly agreed that training is planned while none of the respondents strongly agreed that ICT procedures were easy to understand. The study also shows that 53% of the respondents think that overall ICT and training are very important however only 20% felt that it would make ICT adoption easier, this goes to explain why 46% think ICT is a wise idea and 40% would see themselves using ICT for their health research, only 26% think adopting ICT for health research is desirable. Conclusion/Implications/Recommendations: The study revealed that the level of ICT adoption is very low and this can be attributed to the negative attitude towards ICT practices and procedures .There is a general lack of information on ICT practices both at the tertiary and organizational level, whereby most graduates who get into the workforce do not have a clear understanding of ICT practices while the organizations do not empower their workforce through training . 140 Character Summary: There is a need to create awareness for adoption of ehealth.to create and quantify the value created by ICT .
