Reports on the course of memory-monitoring skills across adulthood are discrepant in conclusions and limited in scope. The purpose of this study was to build a large data base (3 samples and 7 different tasks) to assess performance awareness. Younger (19-41 years) and older (59-93 years) Ss estimated performance either before (i.e., predictions) or after(More)

PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to gain a better insight into the reasons why hospital physicians accept and use a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS). Two research questions are put forward, pertaining to (1) factors that contribute to physicians' acceptance of PACS, and (2) whether these factors change as physicians gain experience in(More)
Successfully introducing a new technology in a health-care setting is not a walk in the park. Many barriers need to be overcome, not only technical and financial but also human barriers. In this study, we focus on the human barriers to health-care information systems' implementation. We monitored the acceptance of a Picture Archiving and Communication(More)
This paper describes a new framework for technology acceptance research. Next to an information-system specific belief context, an individual's personality context and an overall technology-related context are introduced. It is primarily introduced to explore antecedents of technology acceptance's independent constructs. The framework is proposed so that(More)
This article outlines the strategy used by our hospital to maximize the knowledge transfer to referring physicians on using a picture archiving and communication system (PACS). We developed an e-learning platform underpinned by the cognitive load theory (CLT) so that in depth knowledge of PACS' abilities becomes attainable regardless of the user's prior(More)
The hypothesis that individual differences in performance scores increase with increasing adult age was reviewed. A meta-analysis of memory articles appearing in the Journal of Gerontology from 1985 to 1990 was conducted to examine potential age differences in within-group variabilities. There was no strong evidence in the data reported here that overall(More)
1. Introduction Measuring user acceptance of technology is a way of determining the user's intentions toward using a new technology. Implementers could benefit by knowing the potential pitfalls of adopting a new way of working and anticipate to avoid excessive implementation costs. Technology acceptance models can be used to determine which factors are(More)
A scale measuring practical problem-solving ability in adulthood was developed in a preliminary study and demonstrated to have satisfactory psychometric properties for research purposes: there was satisfactory internal consistency, discriminant validity, and there were significant relationships between performance and a measure of subjective experience. The(More)
