Abstract: 

Introduction: Since hospitals are the main healthcare providers, they are assumed as the main institutions for implementing information systems. Hospitals need efficient hospital information system (HIS) to manage their raising needs. This study reviewed the importance of HIS, implementation of prerequisites and selection factors from views of staff of medical record department in hospitals affiliated to Hormozgan University of Medical Sciences.
Methods: This was a descriptive-cross sectional study in which study subjects included the staff of medical record department of hospitals affiliated to Hormozgan University of Medical Sciences. Views of staff were collected through a researcher-made questionnaire. Validity of the questionnaire was measured by content validity (by reviewing the relevant resources and faculty members’ perspectives). Reliability was assessed by Cronbach’s alpha test (0.94). The sample size was equal with the sample population (n=71). The researchers collected the necessary data through direct observation method.
Results: According to the views of staff, importance of every three aspects i.e. “different criteria for selecting HIS”, “importance of prerequisites for HIS implementation” and “importance of using HIS” was at high to very high level (91.4%, 89.6% and 77.4%, respectively). Staff with higher educational level emphasized more on importance of HIS prerequisite implementation. Importance of different criteria for selection of HIS was more obvious among staff with educational level related to their organizational position.
Conclusion: Staff of medical record department had very positive attitude towards HIS implementation. Managers have to pay higher attention to the views and experiences of these users and staff in order to develop and upgrad these systems.
