Abstract There is a growing use of electronic health care records with adoption rates reported recently of 69% in the United States and 57% in Canada. Unfortunately the huge promise of electronic care records (ECRs) to improve access to information including information on costs, along with improved care coordination and planning, and improved access to alerts and decision tools to enhance patient safety, along with an ability to easily audit and benchmark health care outcomes and enhance clinical research, has to date not been generally realised. There have been many research papers published examining the perceived barriers to update of the ECR as perceived by physicians and a systematic review identified 8 main categories of barriers. An appreciation of these barriers is helpful to ensuring better success in ECR uptake.
