"Hospital Information Systems" are designed for improving the health quality of people and for the management of all the hospital's medical and administrative information in order to enable health professionals to perform their jobs effectively and efficiency. However the main problem has been raising that is whether hospital personnel want to use these systems while performing their tasks. This study tests an extended model by adding some factors to the original model that is based on the literature: technology acceptance model (TAM), to analyze the health professionals' behavioral intention to use hospital information system Avicenna ® . The research is tested on the users who are able to use "Hospital Information System" of Yüksek İhtisas Hospital is located in Ankara, Turkey. Data is collected from 52 subjects who are health professionals (doctors, nurses, technical staff etc.) in hospital. Also correlation, explanatory and confirmation factor analysis was performed to test the reliability and validity of the questionnaire method. The structural equation modeling (SEM) technique has also been used to evaluate the models.


Interoperability of Medical Device Information and the Clinical Applications: An HL7 RMIM based on the ISO/IEEE 11073 DIM
Yuksel, Mustafa; Doğaç, Asuman (2011-07-01)
Medical devices are essential to the practice of modern healthcare services. Their benefits will increase if clinical software applications can seamlessly acquire the medical device data. The need to represent medical device observations in a format that can be consumable by clinical applications has already been recognized by the industry. Yet, the solutions proposed involve bilateral mappings from the ISO/IEEE 11073 Domain Information Model (DIM) to specific message or document standards. Considering that...
Assessing hospital information systems processes: a validation of prise information systems success model in healthcare
Ozkan, Sevgi; Baykal, Nazife; Sincan, Murat (null; 2008-12-01)
Although there is limited research and evidence base, it is reasonable to expect that high quality information technology is an integral factor in the success of today’s health care sector. However, the health care sector is considered to be low level investor in Information Technology (IT) when compared to other sectors. There are studies that look at the sums spent on health IT as a basis for determining how effective the IT systems are. We support the idea that the effectiveness of IT systems, is not an ...
Artemis message exchange framework: Semantic interoperability of exchanged messages in the healthcare domain
Bicer, V; Laleci, GB; Doğaç, Asuman; Kabak, Y (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2005-09-01)
One of the most challenging problems in the healthcare domain is providing interoperability among healthcare information systems. In order to address this problem, we propose the semantic mediation of exchanged messages. Given that most of the messages exchanged in the healthcare domain are in EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) or XML format, we describe how to transform these messages into OWL (Web Ontology Language) ontology instances. The OWL message instances are then mediated through an ontology mapping...
Streamlining a hospital information system
Dağlı, Duygu; Onay, Lamia Zeynep; Department of Business Administration (2011)
The success of a Hospital Information System (HIS) is related to the software, its users, and the fit between the system and the hospital’s operations. The objective of this thesis is to analyze the Hospital Information System used by a private hospital, and streamline the system to better fit the requirements of the hospital. The modules of the HIS, the processes, the requirements of external parties, the attitudes of users as well as the control mechanisms and the forms are analyzed through observations, ...
Measuring healthcare process quality: Applications in public hospitals in Turkey
Yildiz, Ozkan; Demirörs, Onur (2013-03-01)
Process improvement activities are becoming an essential part of a number of healthcare organizations. As the popularity of process improvement grows, the need for common objective measures is becoming more critical. Numerous quality measures have been suggested to evaluate healthcare quality. However, applications utilizing the existing quality measures mostly focus on the quality of specific diseases, clinics or clinical areas. Although these measures or measurement sets contain structure, process or outp...
