Abstract

Electronic prescribing systems (e-prescribing) are designed to improve safety, quality, and health efficiency. The use of electronic systems was originally intended to save paper (paperless), but on its development, there are many benefits obtained from this system including reducing medication errors. The issues discovered during the use of the e-prescribing system served as the foundation for analyzing the use of the e-prescribing system in Palembang city hospitals. The test is conducted by examining the relationship between perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness and the intention to use variable. The purpose of this study was to determine user acceptance of an e-prescribing system using the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). The Structural Equation Model was used to determine the influence of various factors (SEM). The evaluation data were collected through questionnaires distributed to e-prescribing system users. Seven out of ten indicators for perceived ease of use were significant, while all indicators for perceived usefulness were significant. According to the bootstrap estimation results, perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness both had an effect on intention to use. It can be concluded that the perceived ease of use and perceived utility of the electronic prescribing system used by several hospitals in Palembang have an effect on the intention to use.
