Abstract

Technology acceptance model (TAM) is a valid model for predicting the technology acceptance by the users. This study aimed to identify factors affecting hospital information system acceptance by caregivers (physicians and nurses). This descriptive-analytical study was conducted in 2015. The research population was the physicians and nurses working in public hospitals of the city of Bandar-Abbas in Iran. The convenient sampling method was used to select 172 persons. Data collection tool was a questionnaire which its validity and reliability was measured. Data were entered within SPSS software and analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics and the Spearman’s rho test. Direct and positive relationship exist between the variables of image in using IT applications and perceived usefulness (R=0.26, P<0.01). The level of computer skills had a direct positive effect on perceived ease of use (R=0.40, P<0.01) and behavioral intention (R=0.30, P<0.01). Furthermore, subjective norms only had a positive direct effect on perceived ease of use (R=0.65, P<0.001). Perceived ease of use had no effect on behavioral intention, but had a direct positive effect on PU (R=0.46, P<0.001). Also, perceived usefulness had a positive direct effect on behavioral intention (R=0.61, P<0.001). Image in using IT application, the level of computer skills, subjective norms, Perceived ease of use, and perceived usefulness regarding of the use of IT application had a more prominent role in the acceptance of hospital information system by the users. Therefore, it is necessary to consider these variables while designing, purchasing, or revising hospital information systems. © 2016, Institute of Integrative Omics and Applied Biotechnology.
