Abstract:

The relationship between the acceptance of Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE) by MD and DO family medicine physicians in Maricopa County, Arizona and physician age, practice size, hours per week of personal computer use, and years of experience working as physician was analyzed. Written invitations were mailed to 1,118 MD and DO family medicine physicians in Maricopa County. Fifty-three (4.74%) physicians participated in the survey. At the .05 level, the acceptance of CPOE as measured by the mean score of the 23 scales of the extended technology acceptance model (TAM2) was found to have no significant relationship between age, practice size, hours per week of personal computer use, and years of experience as a physician. At the .10 level, only the relationship between physician acceptance of CPOE and years of experience was found to be significant. With an increased sample size, the relationship between technology acceptance and factors of age, practice size, personal computer usage, and years of medical practice experience could possibly show to have a significant relationship.
