The implementation, adoption and the use of EHR globally has been proven a challenge, despite the numerous advantages that have been noted with the use of an electronic health recording system to improve health care services. Among some of the challenges that have been reported is lack of knowledge and staff attitudes towards this new technology. It has also been noted that the success or failure of an EHR system is dependent on nurses’ or individual user acceptance, as they are pivotal in the healthcare team; therefore, their attitude towards an EHR system is crucial.
