population consisting of financial information system users in educational, health, and medical
centers affiliated to Isfahan University of Medical Sciences during 2018 that were studied by the
census method (n = 108) because of a small number of these users. The data were collected using
a questionnaire. The content validity of questionnaire was confirmed by pooling the ideas of five
academic members of the health information management and two financial information system
users. The reliability of questionnaire was also estimated by Cronbach’s alpha. Then, the AMOS
software was used to analyze the gathered data.
RESULTS: The result shows that system quality was positively correlated to the use and user
satisfaction whereas use and user satisfaction was positively correlated to net benefit (P < 0.05).
Furthermore, the information quality was positively correlated to the user satisfaction (P < 0.05).
CONCLUSIONS: As per the finding of this study, to improve user’s intention to use the financial
information system and their satisfaction toward the system, managers need to develop useful,
easy‑to‑understand, easy‑to‑learn, and easy‑to‑use information systems.
