Objectives: This research utilizes the Technology Adoption Model (TAM) with Innovation Diffusion Theory (IDT) as a framework to explore users’ final choice of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems. Methods/Statistical Analysis: First, we identify information characteristics (information accuracy and stability) and system characteristics (system security and compatibility). Second, we look into the positive connections among enjoyment, perceived usefulness, ease of use and operation intention of EMR. We test the research model using PLS 2.0. Findings: The results show that information accuracy, system security and system compatibility have an important impact on the usefulness perception for EMR while information stability has no influence on its recognized usefulness. Improvements/Applications: The results of this study highlight important factors which impact users’ acceptance of EMR systems
