Introduction: Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology has been implemented in a wide variety of industries including healthcare field. Due to the introducing RFID technology in the healthcare industry, it is necessary to determine the factors influencing acceptance of this technology. Therefore, in the present study, the factors associated with the acceptance of RFID technology in Health Information Management hospitals affiliated to Iran University of Medical Sciences were studied.
Methods: The current applied research was descriptive-analytic. A questionnaire was distributed among all health information management staff of the hospitals affiliated to Iran University of Medical Sciences (n=138) and finally, 135 questionnaires were completed. The results of the study were analyzed through SPSS16 and using descriptive statistics, inferential statistics, and regression.
Results: The mean scores of factors were as follow: social effects (4.24 out of 5), management support (4.34 out of 5), expected performance (4.20 out of 5), expected effort (4.09 out of 5), facilitating conditions (3.47 out of 5), security (3.83 out of 5) and intention (4.3 out of 5). The coefficients of influence of social effects (0.125), management support (0.210), expected performance (0.244), expected effort (0.148) and facilitating conditions (0.135) showed positive significant relationships with intention to use RFID. However, security was not an influential factor on use of RFID.
Conclusion: Based on the findings, providing general education, facilitating the use of this technology by vendors and developing adequate infrastructure may increase the willingness to accept RFID.
