This study reports perceptions of Electronic Health Record (EHR) adoption among key constituents in Mississippi to inform health care professionals and administrators about factors that influence the adoption and integration of EHRs into practice. The results from a survey conducted at two statewide health conferences in Mississippi indicated a high degree of optimism in regards to successful EHR adoption, but less for specific practices and in rural areas. These results are relevant to healthcare decision and policy makers to determine needed professional preparation and programming, if any, for current and future healthcare professionals; and to identify workforce development challenges lending insight into the technology skills needed to adopt and utilize EHRs at a meaningful level. Further, the assessment identified potential factors that may be associated with the current level of adoption of utilization of EHRs.
