In this paper the factors are analyzed, which influenced on the acceptance of Electronic Medical System (EMR) of healthcare organization in Korea. The measured variables and factors were defined on the base of former research works. The questionnaires with Likert`s 5 scale were administrated in the 102 general hospitals in Korea. This data was analyzed with SPSS v. 20. According to the result of factor analysis, the 4 influencing factors were grouped. They are, "ICT-infrastructure of healthcare organization", "Management strategy of healthcare organization", "EMR acceptance" and "EMR-performance". 5 hypotheses about the correlations between factors were formulated and analyzed with structural equation model(SEM). The result of this paper could be the good reference to the healthcare organizations on how they should implement and operate the EMR system.
