Political, economic, and safety concerns have militated for the adoption of electronic health records (EHR) by physicians in the United States, but current rates of adoption have failed to achieve the expected levels. This qualitative phenomenological study of practicing physicians reveals obstacles to adoption. Maintaining the physicians' perceived sense of control of the process is key. Electronic Health Records are critical to the support of research, quality control, cost reduction, and implementation of new technologies and methods in healthcare. The results of this study of physician perceptions of technology in their medical practice support conclusions that will assist all stakeholders in building a more consistent, comprehensive, and cost-effective healthcare system.
