The user acceptance of technology determines its success and failure. Digital health is having a major impact on the improvement of health care and its delivery. My Health Record (MyHR) is the digital health solution that Australia implemented nationally to facilitate accessibility of health summaries data anywhere and anytime. The objective of this study is to explore the adoption of MyHR in general practices – one of the vital key players – in the state of Victoria. This article presents the current status of adoption in these general practices, using the lens of a proposed conceptual framework. This framework is based on a novel integrated model of user acceptance that merges three well-known user acceptance theories with some contextualisation to MyHR. It enables a comprehensive review of current system adoption, as well as factors such as the organisation, technology, people and perceived task fitness.
