Current healthcare outcomes depend on the adoption of valid and latest research evidence and practicing evidence-based medicine (EBM). EBM is the process of adaptation of the finest available scientific research evidence into routine clinical practice. However, literature reports gap between actual and required clinical practice. This gap will not be bridged by just updating physicians about EBM. Therefore, it is required to study the motivational factors in a context to use technology in routine clinical practice as things behave differently under varying constraints. This study aimed to address this gap by investigating motivating factors to promote EBM, focusing mainly on developing country context. Innovation diffusion theory will be used to provide the basic or theoretical support for the research as this theory states that the adoption of any innovation is itself facilitated by its certain characteristics. Cross-sectional quantitative methodology will be used for this research. SPSS and SEM will be used to analyze data and validation of the tested research model. The innovation diffusion theory may provide constructive and practical insights into the factors for the successful implementation of EBM, as well as it will provide a guideline for those who try to adopt the bestevidences into their clinical practice.
