I Think It Is Important We All Express Our View On This. Time Is Running Out.
This appeared a little while ago.

How should Australia take advantage of the opportunities that new technologies offer to improve health and care? What do Australians want and expect from a modern healthcare system?
Over 600 online submissions have been received and more than 2,500 people have attended meetings, forums, workshops, webcasts and town halls across Australia – watch the video below to see what the Australian community has been saying!
Our survey provides you or your organisation the opportunity to have your say about the future of digital health in Australia.
Alternatively, you are also welcome to send us a written submission. To provide us a written submission, email your feedback directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submissions will be collected until Tuesday 31 January 2017, 5pm AEDT.

As you watch the video there are some interesting issues raised.
1. Lots of people want to be able to request repeat scripts (myHR can’t do this)
2. Clinicians want, among other things, communications with patients before and after consults (myHR not designed for this)
3. Clinicians want high quality, complete information on which to base decisions. (Enough said.)
4. Clinicians want technology to save them time…(in their dreams navigating the myHR!)
5. Clinicians want better Standards and for them to be used to enable interoperability. (What a good idea after 10 years of NEHTA beating up on Standards Australia.)
6. Privacy and security need to be a focus for clinicians.
Amazingly from all this they seem to conclude that putting technology and data to work safely will improve the lives of citizens and foster happier and healthier lives! To me, and my recent poll supports the idea, this is quite a big leap.
The bottom line is that those who are interested, no matter what their view, should put something in!
