Abstract

Introduction: The high demand for the patients' documents cause a great change in service provision methods. Different systems have been established during decades to feed this need. The use of information technology in different parts of health care system, particularly in hospitals, has high potential for improving the quality of provided services. One of these technologies is Electronic Medical Record (EMR). This study is aimed to determine the factors affecting the intention to use EMR from the perspective of top and middle managers of Shiraz educational hospitals. Method: This research is a cross sectional analytic-descriptive study. The study population were top and middle managers of Shiraz educational hospitals. Data were collected using searcher-made questionnaire with six sections. The data was collected by a researcher-made questionnaire that its content validity was confirmed by specialists. Its reliability was confirmed using Cronbach’s alpha. The data was analyzed by Regression and Pearson, independent sample t-test, and ANOVA Tests using SPSS16 software. Results: The results showed‌ that there isn't a relationship between demographics and the variables in the study. Also there was a significant relationship between effort expectancy, facilitating conditions, familiarity with technology, perceived ease of use, and attitude toward use of EMR with intention to use. Conclusion: With the improvement of effort expectancy, facilitating condition, managers' familiarity with technology, perceived ease of use, and attitude toward use can raise the intention to use EMR by top and middle managers. Increasing the intention to use can also avoid probable failure of the system during performance.
