The objective of the research is to identify the reality of integrating the dimensions of computerized health information systems in Dar Al-Shifa Medical Complex. The researchers used the questionnaire method to collect data. The researchers used the random stratified sample method, where 30 samples were distributed to test the internal consistency, structural validity and consistency of the questionnaire. After verifying the validity and reliability of the questionnaire for the test, (220) questionnaires were distributed to the study community. A total of 197 responses were retrieved with a return rate equal to (89.5%).
The results showed that there were no statistically significant differences between the averages of the sample of the study on these areas and the domains combined due to the variables of (gender), (qualification), (place of work), (years of service), (Job title). The results showed that there were statistically significant differences between the mean of the sample of the study on these areas due to age for the benefit of those aged 40 years and over. The results confirmed that there are statistically significant differences between the averages of the sample estimates of the study on this field due to the nature of the work in favor of those whose nature is administrative. The results showed that there are statistically significant differences between the average of the sample of the study sample on these two fields due to the years of service in favor of those who have served for 10 years or more.
The study reached a number of recommendations including: The need to establish a specialized department of computerized health information systems, with clear responsibilities, and includes technical and administrative specialists and health personnel in the number and efficiency required, working as a team to implement mechanisms of work in computerized health information systems and have direct contact with staff in clinics and divisions to provide services and technical support as soon as possible with the best quality. Increase the support provided by senior management to users by encouraging them to use computerized health information systems and understanding their different needs. Interest in providing the material resources of the equipment and equipment used in the computerized health information system. The need to use database systems in the administrative and medical decisions in clinics and sections that have an impact in raising the effectiveness of decisions by improving the quality.
