This paper presented a literature review research about health professionals' acceptance of HIS and m-Health based on a systematic review procedure. The results were derived from 31 scholar studies of which consisted of 27 HIS studies and 4 m-Health studies. It was aimed to provide insight about acceptance theories and constructs being employed to assess current health information systems and their implementation on mobile platform. Results presented the relevance and contradictions in theories in comparison to HIS and m-Health domains. It is believed that this study can bring new measures in determining influencing factors of m-Health technology users, which can lead the researchers to develop effective models, and so, to assist the developers to improve applications of HIS in the mobile platform.
