This article analyzes the associations between four leadership styles, the implementation of renewed Electronic
Health Record (EHR) systems in hospitals and performance. The four leadership styles are taken from the literature on change management and are: mobilize, guide, involve and adapt. The performance measure is inspired by the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). The empirical context is the implementation of a new EHR system in a Danish multi-site hospital in 2015. We apply a mixed-method approach combining qualitative and quantitative data. Using a Structural Equation Model (SEM) combined with focus group interviews we find evidence for significant impact on performance of all four leadership styles.
