Objectives: The purpose of this study was to develop a model of acceptance of the Mother and Child Health Information System in the Ngawi Regency Health Office, Indonesia based on the technology acceptance model, by integrating organizational support and personal characteristics as external variables and enjoyment as an intervening variable. Methods: The design of this study was cross-sectional. The subjects of this study were 217 village midwives who had operated the Maternal and Child Health Information System in the Ngawi Regency Health Office, Indonesia. The variables studied were perceived organizational support, personal characteristics, perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, perceived enjoyment, behavioral intention, and actual system use. Data were collected through questionnaires, and then analyzed using structural equation modeling. Results: In terms of the total effect, the most meaningful factor affecting actual system use was perceived organizational support (0.766), followed in descending order by behavioral intention to use (0.344), perceived enjoyment (0.238), personal characteristics (0.118), perceived usefulness (0.054), and perceived ease of use (0.048). Conclusions: In the acceptance model of the Mother and Child Health Information System in Ngawi Regency, perceived organizational support was the main determinant of actual system use, while enjoyment was the main intermediate determinant of the indirect effects of perceived organizational support and personal characteristics on actual system use.
