Telepractice   Structural Equation Modeling   South Korea  


The present study aimed to systematically evaluate the effects of the exogenous variables affecting user acceptance and intention to use telepractice in South Korea in order to develop a telepractice acceptance model. A nationwide survey was administered to 215 speech language pathologists (SLPs), of whom 186 (86.52%) were female and 29 (13.48%) were male. Structural equation modeling (SEM) was used to test nine hypotheses proposed based on the extended Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). SEM analysis revealed that perceived ease of use for telepractice was significantly associated with perceived usefulness that was also positively associated with intention to use telepractice. These results are consistent with the prediction of the TAM; however, perceived ease of use for telepractice did not influence intention to use telepractice. In addition, three exogenous variables such as innovativeness, security, and facilitating conditions were also positively associated with perceived ease of use, intention to use and/or perceived usefulness. The present study is significant as it identified the current position of potential telepractice users and supports future expansion of telepractice service delivery model in South Korea.
