Abstract: Information and communication technologies are increasingly seen as potential solutions to major challenges of healthcare. As such, an Electronic Health Record (EHR) is being developed in the Province of Quebec and it is considered the key to the integration of various tools that will enable a safer and more efficient healthcare system for every Quebec citizen. However, the expected benefits can only materialise if healthcare professionals adopt this new technology. This study looked at the factors that influence nurses’ intention to adopt the EHR. A questionnaire was distributed to 199 primary care nurses. Multiple hierarchical regression indicates that the variables explained 58% of the variance in nurses’ intention to adopt an EHR. These findings suggest that in order to improve nurses’ intention to adopt EHR, interventions should target the attitudinal belief that using an EHR will improve the quality of care and should also focus on the perceived behavioral beliefs of nurses to use the EHR.
