Between 1992 and 2002, overall health care spending rose from $827 billion to about $1.6 trillion; it is projected to nearly double to $3.1 trillion in the following decade. This price tag results, in part, from advances in expensive medical technology, including new drug therapies, and the increased use of high-cost services and procedures. Many policymakers, industry experts, and medical practitioners contend that the U.S. health care system--in both the public and private sectors--is in crisis [11, p. 33]. Efforts are underway to convert all medical records from paper to electronic. This manuscript uses the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology as a lens to interpret the responses of physicians completing their Residency in Family Medicine regarding use and adoption of Electronic Medical Record Systems (EMR).
