Abstract:

This study sought to determine if the training being provided on the William Beaumont Army Medical Center Hospital WBAMC Information system meets the needs of system users. The study used a survey instrument developed by Dr. James Bailey, to evaluate user satisfaction with the WBAMC Hospital Information System HIS. HIS users were identified by three groups physicians, nurses and others. The responses were evaluated using an algorithm developed by Dr. Bailey and a multivariate analysis performed with the personal computer version of Statistical Package for Social Sciences SPSSPC. In general, the user groups were satisfied with the HIS and its associated training programs. However, the physicians expressed dissatisfaction with not being able to retrieve laboratory results and radiology reports from the HIS.
