Proceedings of the 14th Pacific Asia Conference on Information Systems (PACIS 2010) (pp. 693-704). Taiwan: National Taiwan University.


The aim of this research is to design an appropriate conceptual evaluation framework with a draft instrument for validating the structure of the Taiwanese EHR systems evaluation framework. According to the knowledge of "Triangulation research method" and both quantitative and qualitative approaches, the modified Delphi method was applied to refine the proposed instrument into practicable for real medical environment based on a quantitative approach. In addition, by calculating content validity index for items (I-CVI) and content validity index for scales (S-CVI), it also indicates the degree of consensus between and within questions in the proposed instrument. In short, an appropriate instrument for achieving its target was generated in this research.
