Objective: This study aims to identify and evaluate the Hong Kong public's views, expectations, concerns and awareness of a proposed electronic health record (eHR) as well as to inform policy formulation regarding its community-wide implementation. The following questions are addressed: - To what extent is the public aware, supportive and willing to accept eHR? - What are the public's attitudes and access concerns towards eHR? - What cost per year will the public be willing to bear for eHR? - How are Hong Kong residents' perceptions and expectations similar or different from those in other health systems such as the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada?
