This paper proposes a study on the underlying factors affecting the adoption, routinization and infusion of electronic patient record in the clinics of Hong Kong. We suggest using a focus group to identify the potential antecedents for the three stages of innovation diffusion (adoption, routinization and infusion). Then a theoretical framework based on the antecedents and their impact on innovation diffusion will be layout. It will be verified upon a survey sending to the medical practitioners in Hong Kong.
