Introduction: This study investigated the factors affecting the acceptance of hospital electronic health record (EHR) adoption by users based on Technology Acceptance Model3 (TAM3). Methods: The self-administered TAM3 questionnaire was used for data gathering. Content validity and reliability of the TAM3 questionnaire were measured. The relation between dependent, independent, and mediator variables was analyzed using multiple regression analysis. Results: The results from 224 users indicated that subjective norm, job relevance, output quality, voluntariness, computer experience have significant impacts on perceived usefulness. Also, perceptions of external control and computer anxiety were identified as having significant impacts on perceived ease of use. Perceived usefulness did not have a mediator role between result demonstrability and behavioral intention. Perceived ease of use was not found to be a mediating factor in the relationship between computer self- efficacy and behavioral intention, as well as perceived enjoyment. Conclusions: The findings of the current study, provide valuable scientific evidence for key affecting factors on hospital EHR in Iran as a developing country. Our results showed the main constructs and relationships depicted in the TAM3 were found to be applicable to assess the adoption of hospital EHR.
