The purpose of this qualitative grounded theory study was to examine the experiences of clinicians in the adoption of Electronic Medical Records in a Medicare certified Home Health Agency. An additional goal for this study was to triangulate qualitative research between describing, explaining, and exploring technology acceptance. The experiences were studied through an anonymous survey using a third party vendor. The data revealed that in spite of Internet and connectivity issues, clinicians at XYZ Home Care overlooked these issues because of the benefits in utilizing an electronic medical record system. These benefits include quick access to patient medical records and saving time. The data allowed for triangulation between describing, explaining, and exploring technology acceptance.
