AusHealthIT Poll Number 437 – Results – 26th August, 2018.

Here are the results of the poll.

Do You Believe The Senate Inquiry Into The myHR Will Result In Changes In The myHR Program And Which Outcome Do You Expect?

Cancellation / Wind-down Of The myHR 20% (35)

A Switch To Opt-In With Useful Other Improvements 10% (18)

Some Clinical And Privacy / Security Improvements - Still Opt-Out 5% (8)

Minor Change With Little Actual Improvement - Still Opt-Out 18% (31)

Essentially No Change 45% (79)

I Have No Idea 2% (3)

Total votes: 174

This is a split poll with either no or little change or the biggest possible change coming out on top.

Overall it seems most expect little significant change. So we are in for disappointment again?

If you have not already, don’t forget to come to grips with what we are really facing…..

Any insights welcome as a comment, as usual.

A really, great turnout of votes!

It must have been a fairly easy question as 3/174 readers were not sure what the appropriate answer was.

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

My vote did not reflect my preference. Simply the reality. I can find no compelling reason for a government operated My Human Resource system. Cast against the modern technology landscape it seems ill fitting and lack primary purpose. It does not complement of make more efficient clinical workflows. It does little to add value for a consumer, in fact it may actually result in people being even more distant from their health and well-being as they may believe the MyHR is taking care of everything for them.

It is a distraction but technology and healthcare are heading in a different direction and the MyHR eventually will be unable to constrict change.
