The purpose of this study is to develop a methodology by extending the Technology Acceptance Model (Davis, 1989) in order to contribute the acceptance of Hospital Management Systems in hospitals. The study also aims to extend the TAM by adding external variables. Thereby the relationships between perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use and external TAM factors and how these relationships will affect the behavioral intention to use the technology will be determined. In this study quantitative research methods are used. Quantitative research comprises from a questionnaire which is tested in Turkish government hospitals by hospital personnel, physicians, nurses, technicians and administrative personnel. After collection of data from quantitative research the analysis of the data was conducted. The findings of the analysis gave the significant relationships between perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, behavioral intention and external variables. In conclusion this study points out the effects and the compatibility of the critical factors of TAM on the user acceptance of Hospital Management Systems in Turkish hospitals.

Software process improvement based on static process evaluation
Seçkin, Haldun; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
This study investigates software development process improvement approaches. In particular, the static process evaluation methodology proposed by S. Güceğlioğlu is applied on the requirements analysis and validation process applied in Project X in MYCOMPANY and an improved process is proposed. That methodology is an extension of the ISO/IEC 9126 approach for software quality assessment, and is based on evaluating a set of well-defined metrics on the static model of software development processes. The improv...
Face detection in active robot vision
Önder, Murat; Halıcı, Uğur; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
The main task in this thesis is to design a robot vision system with face detection and tracking capability. Hence there are two main works in the thesis: Firstly, the detection of the face on an image that is taken from the camera on the robot must be achieved. Hence this is a serious real time image processing task and time constraints are very important because of this reason. A processing rate of 1 frame/second is tried to be achieved and hence a fast face detection algorithm had to be used. The Eigenfa...
An automated tool for information security management system
Erkan, Ahmet; Arifoğlu, Ali; Department of Information Systems (2006)
This thesis focuses on automation of processes of Information Security Management System. In accordance with two International Standards, ISO/IEC 27001:2005 and ISO/IEC 17799:2005, to automate the activities required for a documented ISMS as much as possible helps organizations. Some of the well known tools in this scope are analyzed and a comparative study on them including “InfoSec Toolkit”, which is developed for this purpose in the thesis scope, is given. “InfoSec Toolkit” is based on ISO/IEC 27001:2005...
Intelligent healthcare monitoring system based on semantically enriched clinical guidelines
Laleci, Gökçe Banu; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2008)
Clinical guidelines are developed to assist healthcare practitioners to make decisions on a patient's medical problems and as such they communicate with external applications to retrieve patient data, to initiate medical actions through clinical workflows and to transmit information to alert/reminder systems. The interoperability problems in the healthcare IT domain for interacting with heterogeneous clinical workflow systems and Electronic Healthcare Record (EHR) Systems prevent wider deployment of clinica...
An automated quality measurement approach for business process models
Gürbüz, Özge; Demirörs, Onur; Güceğlioğlu, A. Selçuk; Department of Information Systems (2011)
Business process modeling has become a common need for organizations. Therefore process quality is also having an important role for the organizations. The most of the quality studies are based on cost and time which can be analyzed during or after the execution of the business processes. There are also quality measures which help analyzing measures before the execution of the business processes. This type of measures can give early feedback about the processes. There are three frameworks defined in the lit...
