Summary of "Recommendations for Enhancing the Implementation and Utility of Shared Digital Health Records in Rural Australian Communities."

Internationally, shared digital health records are becoming an important addition to improving contemporary healthcare provision. In 2012, Australia launched its version of a shared digital health record, My Health Record, but enrolment is slow and there remain challenges in its practical implementation. Further, people living with complex and chronic conditions in rural and remote communities often experience challenges in obtaining equitable access to contemporary healthcare provision, including eHealth services. This paper reports on research that explored the experience of and engagement with My Health Record, in a rural Australian community setting. Based on the key research findings, recommendations are presented for improving national roll out of My Health Record. The findings highlight, to understand and engage vulnerable communities and support their adoption and use of shared digital health records, there is a need to move away from traditional models of healthcare delivery toward person-centred care delivered from a digital complex adaptive systems perspective.
