Predicting intentions of nurses to adopt patient personal health records: a structural equation modeling approach

• Personal health records (PHRs) enhance multidisciplinary communication of providers.• No previous evidence was found on predicting nurses' intentions to adopt patient PHRs.• Few studies have used an extended technology acceptance model to explore medical information technology- related factors.• Evidence of how subjective norms influence nurses' attitudes for patient PHRs is provided.• Nurses had positive attitudes of using patient PHRs when it is encouraged by supervisors and colleagues.

About Me

As a Dermatologist and Informatician my research mainly involves application of bioinformatics techniques and tools in dermatological conditions. However my research interests are varied and I have publications in areas ranging from artificial intelligence, sequence analysis, systems biology, ontology development, microarray analysis, immunology, computational biology and clinical dermatology. I am also interested in eHealth, Health Informatics and Health Policy.
