Abstract
This study investigated the utilization of electronic health records (HER) systems and their impact on healthcare delivery at Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital (NAUTH) in Nnewi, Nigeria. The background highlighted the increasing use of EHRs globally to improve healthcare quality, patient safety, and operational efficiency but noted little was known about HER progress and effectiveness in Nigerian hospitals like NAUTH. The study utilized a descriptive survey research design. The population consisted of 53 health records staff at NAUTH. A structured questionnaire was used for data collection. The research hypothesis tested was: There is a significant relationship between the utilization of electronic health records systems and their impact on healthcare delivery. The findings revealed that a majority (50.9%) of the 53 respondents agreed that EHRs offer more benefits compared to manual record-keeping systems. However, 52.8% cited barriers to successful HER utilization. Most (98.1%) agreed that HER impact can improve healthcare at NAUTH. In testing the hypothesis using chi-square analysis, the calculated value (14.4) was greater than the tabulated value (3.84), leading to the rejection of the null hypothesis. The conclusion was that there is a significant relationship between HER utilization and its impact on healthcare delivery. The study recommended providing more HER facilities, ensuring uninterrupted power supply, training staff on EHRs, and prioritizing the employment of skilled health records personnel to enhance HER utilization and optimize healthcare delivery....
