AusHealthIT Poll Number 325 – Results – 26th June, 2016.

Here are the results of the poll.

Are You Expecting The New Australian Digital Health Authority (ADHA) Will Be A Major Improvement On NEHTA In Terms Of Usefulness, Value Added, Openness And Transparency?

Yes 8% (12)

No 77% (117)

I Have No Idea 15% (23)

Total votes: 152

A pretty clear result – expectations are very low – and I suspect we are all wanting to be proved wrong….

A good turnout of votes.

Sorry about the week away – due to connectivity circumstances beyond my control!

Again, many, many thanks to all those that voted!

David.

Welcome back David. I hope you didn't suffer withdrawal symptoms - too much.

Health have released some more statistics on MyHR.
https://myhealthrecord.gov.au/internet/mhr/publishing.nsf/Content/news-002

The current page includes over a million new registrations - not health records as the twitterati keep reporting, in their ignorance.

IMHO, the only stats that have any sort of meaning are:

Number/% of Australians with a Clinical Health Summary: 135,679/0.00246%
Number/% of Australians with a Consumer Entered Health Summary: 58,630/0.00570%

If you look at the stats released on 14 June, which didn't include the 1 million new registrations which probably haven't yet turned into health records, it's still not very impressive:

Number/% of Registrations with a Clinical Health Summary: 129,408/4.7%

There weren't any stats for Consumer Entered Health Summary on 14 June

There are no statistics of downloaded health summaries, or of health summaries that have been used in the delivery of health care.

These last two numbers are really the only ones that matter.

For those who didn't notice, the percentages are the wrong way round.

Correction:

Number/% of Australians with a Clinical Health Summary: 135,679/0.00570%
Number/% of Australians with a Consumer Entered Health Summary: 58,630/0.00246%

Apologies.
