Abstract: The purpose of this study is to understand people's perception and intention towards Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems and how those intentions play a vital role in improving the adoption of EHR systems. We proposed a research model based on the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology and health belief model to investigate the impact of specific factors on health professional's intentions of using EHR systems. The results showed that trust is a significant influencing factor to the adoption and acceptance of EHR system by health care professionals. This study then recommended that further investigation into the barriers and motivators of EHR adoption should be done. By identifying and understanding the determinants of adopting EHRs, interventions and education can be designed to improve the adoption of EHRs.
