Contemporary forces are increasing the pressure on health care facilities to use information systems (IS) to achieve better outcomes. Among these forces, increasing nursing shortage, aging population, and the emphasis on patient safety are particularly important ones. IS use improve nurses' ability to make sound clinical decisions in a timely manner, eliminate the amount of time spent on clerical work and give nurses more time for direct patient care. Yet there is little information about the factors that facilitate IS use, nurses' satisfaction and their realizations of IS benefits. The purposes of this study are to explore the relationships among inputs related to individual characteristics (age, nursing education, and computer experience), and organizational factors (user involvement in implementation and management support) and the process of nurses' IS use; and the relationships between IS use and IS outcomes (IS benefits and satisfaction). This study will also explore the moderating effect of the nurses' beliefs about IS use (self- efficacy, perceived ease of use, and the perceived usefulness of the IS) on the relationship between using IS, benefits, and nurses' satisfaction from using those systems. This study will be guided by Donabedian's and Holzemer & Reilly's conceptual framework. The study will use a descriptive correlational cross-sectional design, with a survey methodology. A random sample of staff nurses who work in hospitals and are members in Ohio Nurses Association will be mailed with the study questionnaires. Nurses have to spend at least 50% of their time providing direct patient care and use at least one IS to be included in the study. Data analysis will include: descriptive statistics, correlation, and multiple regression analysis. The results of this study will help to evaluate factors affecting IS use, identify potential barriers or factors that can enable the realization of the benefits of IS use and satisfaction as outcomes in heath care.
