This paper presents part of the work done for the "Electronic Health Record (EHR) at National Level project" under the Framework Program for Research, Technological Development and Innovation 2009-2010 of the Research Promotion Foundation. A summary of the limitations and threats of the local infrastructure that compromise the future deployment of a National EHR in Cyprus are analyzed. Some of the derived solutions in respect to a number of difficulties that seem to prevent the adaptation of a national Electronic Health Record System for Cyprus are presented. Lessons learned from this exercise can be very beneficial when other countries attempt to do the same exercise. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2014.
