Abstract

Background:

Analysis of humanitarian issues affecting the implementation time of information systems to increase the acceptance of these systems is essential.

Objective:

The aim of this study was to assess the behavioral feasibility of the clinical nursing information system.

Methods:

An applied cross-sectional study was conducted with 348 nurses in 2015. Data were collected by face to face interviews and a questionnaire containing 33 questions, which were rated on a 5-point Likert scale. Face and content validity of the questionnaire was confirmed, and its reliability was estimated 0.90 through Cronbach's alpha coefficient. Data were analyzed using chi-square tests and t-test.

Results:

An average score of behavioral feasibility was 67.44%. The rate of supply provided for implementing the clinical nursing information system was 55.2%, which was in a semi-favorable level. The necessity of system deployment in the clinical nursing sector had the highest frequency (88.2%) and interference of redesigning structures with the current work had the lowest frequency (43.6%).

Conclusion:

The possibility of implementation of the clinical nursing information system in a behavioral dimension is at a semi-favorable level. To increase the acceptance of the system, presenting a new system as a positive change and further training of the nurses is recommended.
