AusHealthIT Poll Number 463 – Results – 24th February, 2019.

Here are the results of the poll.

Are The Australian Public Receiving Value-For-The Money For The Money Being Spent On The ADHA At Present?

Yes 3% (5)

No 97% (146)

I Have No Idea 0% (0)

Total votes: 151

What an clear-cut poll. Most seem to think that that the public is the subject of a rip-off, and not getting what they pay for.

Any insights on the poll welcome as a comment, as usual.

A more than reasonable turnout of votes - back to normal!

It must have been a pretty easy question as just 0/151 readers were not sure what the appropriate answer was.

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

One of those yes votes was a terrible cringe-worthy accident!

The measure of ADHA success is clear in the national strategy (or the let’s rationale our overblown budgets).

Extract from online version

Almost five million Australians now have a record (20% of the population)[7] and, with opt-out participation arrangements due to be implemented from 2018, an estimated 98% of the population will then have a My Health Record. In 2018, Australia will have the highest participation rate in a national health record system in the world. For the first time, members of healthcare teams will have ready access to key health information for their patients. END EXTRACT.

We can also use the odd use of the internet and connectivity statistics to model the actual expected level of persons likely to be informed.

There is also this extract that ADHA would like to be measured against

The benefits of the My Health Record system will be realised through the delivery of three strategic objectives:

1- Increase consumer participation through the delivery of national opt-out arrangements coupled with coordinated awareness activities.
2- Increase core clinical content of the My Health Record system through improved system functionality and integration with existing clinical workflows.
3- Achieve extensive adoption by healthcare providers across the industry, through national education and support, national peak body engagement and local education and support primarily using primary health networks (PHNs) as delivery partners.

The first one it might be too early as conscription and participation are to completely different measures. I am sure we will see lots of well meaning stories that are uncoordinated and continue to be forgettable.
The second one the ADHA has clearly demonstrated that they are willing to allow flawed software to continue for years even though it prevents clinical data entering the system
The third it seems evident at present this has actually been further eroded through repurposing the narrative toward consumers and pharmacies and away from GP, it is clear the target for emergencies and Ambo’s has not played out well (another Twitter length analysis by Timmy)

And let’s not mention the Health Care Homes raging success story.

There was reports coming out of NT that Tim’s mis-directed marketing campaign resulted in a noticeable number of NT residents opting out of the NT EHR.

I think the following sums up Tim’s success rating - an estimated 98% of the population will then have a My Health Record. In 2018,
