The response of health professionals to the use of health information technology (HIT) is an important research topic that can partly explain the success or failure of any HIT application. The present study applies a modified version of the revised technology acceptance model (TAM) to assess the relevant believes and acceptance of electronic health records (EHR) in Jordan. This paper outlines a research project that will examine EHR acceptance and utilisation by physicians in Jordan. It describes the theoretical basis behind the development of a research model that will be employed to empirically validate the model using substantial quantitative and qualitative data. The theoretical significance of this work is that it uses a thoroughly constructed research model to extend technology acceptance research into the health sector.
