The use of ICT in healthcare, which resulted into e-healthcare, has many benefits to both individuals and governments. These benefits include reduction in medical errors, improvements in physician efficiency and an increase in the quality of care delivered. Unfortunately, there are many challenges associated with electronic healthcare adoption. In this paper we investigate the challenges associated with electronic healthcare adoption in Tanzania, and propose solutions to them. The proposed solutions will help the Tanzanian government in its design and implementation of electronic healthcare projects.
