AusHealthIT Poll Number 403 – Results – 31st December, 2017.

Here are the results of the poll.

Do You Believe 'Replatforming' Can Solve The Issues That Presently Beset The myHR?

No - It Should Be Scrapped 84% (154)

No - More Fundamental Changes Are Needed 13% (24)

Yes 2% (4)

I Have No Idea 1% (2)

Total votes: 184

Any insights welcome as a comment, as usual. It seems that the vast majority think more than just updating the platform on which the myHR runs is required to save it.

This is consistent with all the discussion that has gone on in the comments last week. It seems there are a range of fundamental questions around the myHR and where it fits / should fit in the Digital Health ecosystem and just what it is for.

There is also pretty clear recognition that there are complex political dimensions to the myHR the realities of which we are stuck with and which, at present, are seemingly insoluble!

Whichever way you look at it is a pretty expensive and much less than ideal mess!

A really great turnout of votes!

We note two respondents who are clueless!

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

I find the comment earlier this week about being sacked for having an opinion is not a good starting point for a national entity like the ADHA. If they are unable to question the path ahead then how as a community can we start a robust conversation?

The current state problem as I can best summarise to start a conversation:

Much of the necessary information models are in place but the cross-business interworking requires understanding of an acceptable nationally aligned business model fairly distributing effort, resource, and reward.
The current situation in Australian digital healthcare delivery is a portrait of fragmented systems, business and policy agreements and accountability that in part constrain the majority of investments resulting in deployments that remain heavily reliant on human interpretation of the information received with little or no computer aided processing or analysis.
We as either adopters or beneficiaries of digital health clearly have higher expectations from digitally enabled healthcare services. This in part is a reflection or the massive technological and ease of use advancement made across all other aspects of our lives that are touched by information technology and transformational business models. This is part my distort what can be achieved in healthcare at this moment in time, as healthcare is not a simple transaction based profession like banking or mining.

Technology is not the sole answer, the problem must been investigated from all perspectives and new business models will need to be coaxed into existence. There may also be a need to rationalise a number of competing capabilities, an example is the sheer amount of identifiers for consumers.

I look forward to being brutally torn apart and others thoughts. Grahame I shall remain Anon sadly.
