Abstract
This paper is a part of a large study, which examines healthcare professionals’ attitudes regarding the adoption, use and perceived benefits of healthcare information technology (HIT). To date, literature on HIT has shown many important benefits related to quality and efficiency as well as limitations related to generalization and to a lack of empirical data on benefits. The aim of this paper is to develop a survey instrument focused the perceived benefits of HIT adoption. We exhaustively reviewed the construct of perceived benefits in various research areas to identify established approaches to predicting individual’s intentions to adopt technology. The items of perceived benefits taken from previous studies were developed and modified, and three benefit dimensions (direct, indirect and strategic benefits) were described. The questionnaire addressed the following issues: demographic information, perceived benefits of computerized physician/provider order entry (CPOE), and intent to adopt CPOE. We present a survey instrument containing the perceived benefits construct targeting healthcare executives. This is developed and validated by the translational validity test that attempts to assess the degree to which we accurately translated our construct into the operationalization. The Importance of the instrument for perceived benefits of HIT adoption as well as its limitations is also presented.
