Abstract

Integration of electronic health records (EHRs) has shown promise in improving health care quality. In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), EHRs have been recently adopted to improve the quality and safety of patient care. A cross-sectional survey of 680 Healthcare Providers (HCPs) was conducted to assess the satisfaction of HCPs in the UAE with EHRs’ impact on access/viewing, documentation and medication administration, and to explore the barriers encountered in their use. High overall satisfaction with EHRs was reported by HCPs, suggesting its acceptance (M = 4.08/5, SD = 0.52). Physicians reported the greatest overall satisfaction with EHRs, while nurses showed significantly higher satisfaction with the impact on medication administration compared to other HCPs (P = 0.001). The most significant reported barrier was lack of belief in the value of EHRs for patient care. With the large investment in technology, additional research is needed to promote the full utilization of EHR for improved clinical outcomes and cost efficiencies.
