Attitudes and Experience in Adoption of Electronic Health Record Among Nursing Personnel

Attitudes and Experience in Adoption of Electronic Health Record Among Nursing Personnel
Thesis
Description: 

A cross-sectional study was conducted among 134 nursing personnel to explore attitudes and experience in adopting electronic health record, evaluate preliminary psychometric properties of Electronic Health Record Benefits (EHR-Benefits) scale and investigate the predictors of electronic health record benefits and avoidance of computer use. Most participants used a computer in accessing patient records and clinical documentation and were confident in using them. The accessibility of computers and slow connection to the network were rated as barriers to using computers. Principal component factor analysis resulted in a 5-item (EHR-Benefits) scale with Cronbach’s alpha of 0.86. Simultaneous multiple regression models showed that the predictors explained 29.7% and 42.7% of the variance in perceived benefits of electronic health record and computer-use avoidance, respectively. Following two years of experience in using electronic health record, the majority of nursing personnel had positive attitudes and confidence in using computerized charting.
