Conversion to digital health records slow

The Chattanooga Times Free Press recently discussed with doctors about the conversion to digital health records in their office. The Galen Medical Group of Tennessee is slowly switching to the process. A few factors contributing to the slow transition include modifying exam rooms to be equipped with electronic equipment and making sure records can sync with systems across the nation. One doctor also notes that he's also not of the tech generation, so getting use to a new system will take some time.

What are a few of the other factors you believe are holding up doctors offices from converting to electronic records?
