CIN: Computers, Informatics, Nursing 40(11):p 786-794, November 2022. | DOI: 10.1097/CIN.0000000000000874 Buy Metrics Abstract The study aim was to assess the perception of healthcare workers in primary healthcare centers toward the integration of EHRs into practice. A descriptive cross-sectional design was used. Out of 10 primary healthcare centers, 120 healthcare workers were selected by simple random sampling, whereas 109 questionnaires were fit for analysis. Data were collected using a questionnaire, and both descriptive and inferential statistics were used for data analyses. The findings revealed that the healthcare workers disagreed on EHR integration. They believed that user resistance, missing funds, and unavailability of knowledgeable support personnel are challenges that are hindering EHR integration. Also, limited training on how to use EHRs and lack of computer literacy were identified as challenges. Based on the literature and findings of this study, EHRs can improve the quality of the given patient care, reduce errors, increase productivity, and enable standardization of care. Therefore, education on EHR implementation and funding are needed to successfully integrate EHRs into primary healthcare centers in Nigeria. Copyright © 2022 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
