    The paper reports an empirical investigation of the factors affecting consumer perceptions of the adoption of Electronic Health Records in Australia. This paper also details the processes involved in the pilot testing of the instrument where it has been pilot-tested to a convenience sample by sending individual postal survey envelopes to shortlisted community organisations in Australia.

    Reliability analysis to check the internal consistency was performed using the Cronbach’s alpha. Content validity was achieved by reviewing the instrument with a panel of experts. The results of this pilot study proved the feasibility of a full-scale study and these could be used as the basis for refinement of the instrument. Based upon the outcome of validity and reliability testing, items for the final instrument were identified. The findings showed that the tested model does fit the data well and has a significant and positive impact on the consumer’s attitude in using the EHR.
