Australian health researchers are investigating the use of the Australian Government's My Health Record (MyHR). They are using an online survey to better understand Australian medical practitioners (GPs and Specialists), practice nurses and practice managers' use and views of the MyHR.
Chief clinical investigator, Associate Professor Bronwyn Hemsley from the University of Newcastle, has a long standing interest in the use of internet technologies to improve patient care and hopes the research will elucidate the barriers to more effective use of the MyHR.
The survey takes under 10 minutes to complete and has 5 demographic questions, followed by 12 MyHR questions. Participation is private and confidential.
The research is funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia and has Ethics Approval Number H-2014-0041.
The survey closes on 22 January 2018.
