The use of health information system is increasing and there is substantial evidence suggesting that the successful implementation of HIS in hospitals is significantly related to nurse’s satisfaction and attitudes. In Saudi Arabia, no such studies -according to the author’s knowledge- have addressed this topic.
1- Describe nurses’ attitudes and levels of satisfaction in using the medical center’s information system during their clinical practices. 2- Determine the importance HIS satisfaction domains among nurses in a Saudi tertiary care medical center.
A cross sectional study on 445 nurses working in a Saudi tertiary care medical center was conducted from February to June 2012. A stratified random sample with proportional allocation was used to select the study sample. A questionnaire was used to collect data about attitudes, levels of satisfaction and perceptions towards hospital information system usage. Descriptive and analytical statistics i.e. t-test or Mann-Whitney test, ANOVA or Kruskal–Wallis, correlation and regression were used in the analysis. P value < 0.05 was set as the significant level throughout the study
