Applying Technology Acceptance (TAM) model to determine the acceptance of Nursing Information System (NIS) for Computer Generated Nursing Care Plan among nurses

Abstract

Background: An advance in the development of information technology and the performance standards in the healthcare systems require an electronic health care record to allow the management of the various sources of clinical data in a patient-centered care approach for the health organization which has been well known in nursing, where patient centered holistic care is central to the majority of nursing models through the nursing process. Methods: An explorative study has been carried out to determine the level of acceptance of Nursing Information System (NIS) for computer generated nursing care plan among thirty nurses selected by convenience sampling technique in the selected hospital, Bangalore, Karnataka, India, in the pre implementation stage. Self administered Likert’s scale questionnaire based on Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) has been employed to collect the data. Results: The majority of nurses showed positive intention towards perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use and attitude towards Nursing Information System (NIS) for computer generated nursing care plan and there was significant relation found between perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use and attitude at p<0.05 and p<0.001 level. Conclusion: Results evidenced the acceptance of nursing information system and computer generated nursing care plan and also proposed the need to repeat the study after implementing the nursing information system in the actual setting and also to identify the usage of the system.
