The objective of this study is to propose and test a theoretical model on pre-adoption views of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems by Canadian medical practitioners. An empirical investigation was conducted with a sample of Canadian practitioners not currently using EMRs to identify relevant factors favouring or deterring adoption. The results show that positive performance and effort expectancies help while perceived psychological risk hinders adoption in the view of Canadian medical practitioners who are not yet using EMRs. Overall, this study contributes to understanding practitioners’ views on the potential adoption of EMRs with the purpose of increasing the success of this novel eHealth tool.
