Some Seem To Be Taking A Sensible Approach To Digital Health. Good To See A Little Balance.
I came across this site the other day – from the Brisbane South Primary Health Network and was quite impressed.
Consumers want greater control over and better outcomes for their health, and healthcare providers want access to the right information when and where they need it. Digital health technologies contributes to improving health care quality and outcomes through facilitating effective information management, communication, decision making, and better care coordination and continuity of care.
The Australian digital health environment incorporates several digital infrastructure and technologies at national, state, regional and organisation levels. Brisbane South Primary Health Network’s Digital Health team is continually striving to support the improvement of the efficiency, effectiveness and quality of health services by facilitating the adoption these technologies, providing digital health education and supports to, and fostering collaborations among the health professionals in the region.
The My Health Record is an online summary of an individual’s health information that can be shared securely between the patient and authorised healthcare providers involved in their care.
The Building Digital Health Program is designed to support general practices to collect, analyse and utilize their clinical data.
The Digital Health team is here to support all healthcare organisations with a range of digital health technologies and programs.
----- End Extract.
The web-site is still a bit rocky with some links not quite working but the broad coverage of topics and especially support of data quality and clinical care quality and review is especially welcome.
More emphasis in area other than the myHR is very welcome indeed and offers hope to us all I reckon.
