  • Practitioners' resistance towards electronic health records (EHRs) is a known barrier to implementation and use. This is a cross-sectional study 467 practitioners working at 12 ambulatory care outpatient practices. We analyzed how mean expected satisfaction for future use of EHRs differed at both the level of the provider and the practice. We found that practitioners generally have positive expectations of EHR systems. However, these expectations depend on comfort with IT and typing skills.
