Results: Data analysis indicated that the factor of perception and awareness of the characteristics and advantages of EHR (4.76±0.45) had the highest score, whereas the factor of ensuring the security and confidentiality in the EHR (4.21±0.81) and participation in the design and implementation phase of EHR (4.29±0.71) had the lowest score.
