Objectives: Developed countries have long been aware of the importance of information technologies in achieving success. The role of information technologies in improving the quality of healthcare and aiding patient safety has always been a research interest for the healthcare industry. The present study was conducted to assess healthcare personnel's acceptance of clinical information systems in teaching hospitals of Rasht in 2014.
Methods: The present descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted in 2014 in a study population consisting of the healthcare personnel employed at teaching hospitals of Rasht. The study samples were selected through stratified random sampling and included 520 individuals. Data were collected using a standard questionnaire. The normal distribution of the data was confirmed using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test. The Pearson correlation test and the confirmatory factor analysis were used to analyze the data.
Results: Significant positive relationships were found between the features of information and communication systems and perceived benefits (R = 0.357 and P = 0.001), between the knowledge of information and communication systems and perceived simplicity (R = 0.211 and P = 0.0001), between perceived simplicity and perceived benefits (R = 0.558 and P = 0.0001), between perceived simplicity and the attitude toward application (R = 0.472 and P = 0.0001), between perceived simplicity and the acceptance of clinical information systems (R = 0.441 and P = 0.0001), between perceived benefits and the attitude toward application (R = 0.272 and P = 0.0001), between perceived benefits and the acceptance of clinical information systems (R = 0.171 and P = 0.0001), and between the attitude toward application and the acceptance of clinical information systems (R = 0.676 and P = 0.0001).
Conclusion: The results obtained suggest that teaching hospitals' personnel should help modify the prevailing culture that impedes the acceptance of information systems and to constantly foster more appropriate values and behavioral patterns. The empowerment of the personnel to use clinical information systems is an effective measure that helps increase productivity, efficiency and the optimal use of time.
