Part of the RACGP’s minimum requirements for general practice clinical information systems is the topic of education and engagement.
According to them, barriers to the adoption of certain technology within general practices include:
- Mistrust of technology
- Lack of GP interest in technology
- Misunderstanding of technology
- Investment costs
- Technological education and training
Health information management cannot improve and lead to better health outcomes without the right technology and the will of GPs to adopt them.
Experiencing the full benefits of technology
When implementing technology in general practices, it is important that the software not hinder your staff’s work. The technology being implemented should:
- Support your practice
- Help personnel be more efficient
- Enable better patient management
- Increase timely communications
- Lead to better data collection
With such technology, your practice will be better equipped to support patient-centered care and the provision of safe and high-quality care.
