Abstract: The primary objective of this research is to build a total interpretive structural model of different enablers, vital to implement machine learning in the healthcare system. This study begins by implementing the progressive methodology of TISM to investigate the mutual dependence among ML enablers in the healthcare system. Further, the classification of enablers has been done based upon the driving power and dependence. A structural model of ML enablers has also been developed using the TISM procedure. Ten enablers of ML implementation have been recognised from the literature and experts' opinions. TISM is applied to develop a six-level hierarchical structural model. The proposed study encourages decision-makers to focus on the necessary steps to implement these enablers. Enablers at the bottom of the TISM hierarchy are the ones with reliable driving power and these the lowest level enablers need more consideration from the top administration.
