Abstract:

The present study examines the various determinants that impact the implementation and utilisation of Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems in large hospital environments. Specifically, it investigates the challenges associated with system integration, the efficacy of training programmes, the competency of staff, and organisational cognizance. Through a quantitative research design, surveys were conducted to gather data from 384 participants aged 18 to 45 in both public and private hospital settings. Utilising Structural Equation Modelling (SEM), an analysis of the data unveiled noteworthy connections between variables. According to the findings, overcoming implementation challenges is crucial for enhancing EHR integration effectiveness, highlighting the significance of addressing obstacles early on. Furthermore, by investing in training programmes, you can improve staff competence and the perceived benefits of EHR adoption, underscoring the importance of continuous training for healthcare workers. In addition, having a strong organisational awareness greatly impacts the success of EHR implementation, highlighting the need to promote a culture of awareness and involve stakeholders. This research offers valuable insights into the intricacies of EHR integration in large hospital settings and proposes comprehensive strategies to enhance healthcare delivery and patient outcomes.
