  Introduction: Consequences of implementing hospital information systems have led to a failure in meeting decision makers’ expectations on the one hand and a failure in successful execution of the process on the other hand. This study aimed to evaluate physicians' perspective in regards to the efficiency, benefits and complexities of using hospital information systems in public hospitals of Urmia.

  Methods : This was a descriptive-analytic and cross-sectional study. Stratified random sampling was used for sample selection. Data collection was conducted via a questionnaire. Pearson correlation coefficient and chi-square tests were applied to analyze the assumptions and objectives.

  Results : The finding of this study showed that there was a significant relationship between the expected performance of HIS and familiarity with information technology ( p=0.000 ) and age (p=0.008). There was also a significant relationship between the expected performance of HIS and age. The findings showed a significant relationship between the complexities emerging from the use of HIS and familiarity with information technology (p = 0.000) and age (p = 0.049)..

  Conclusion : Due to physicians’ key role in medical procedures and the importance of adopting information systems, familiarity with information technology is crucial. To have optimal use of information technology in hospitals, training courses for physicians are suggested.
