In a related article in Technology for Doctors, Cindy Scholten, coordinator of the Physician Recruitment Task Force of Sarnia-Lambton in Ontario, states:

Really interesting and different take on how new generations have already been immersed in technology and are more likely to have favorable attitudes toward EMR/EHR systems.

With federal incentives pushing to go paperless by 2014, and $872 million already paid out, it would be likely that the majority of healthcare organizations will have already changed by the time they hit the workforce:
