The eHealth Readiness of Australia’s Allied Health Sector – Dept of Health and Ageing – 30 May 2011

ISBN: 978-1-74241-537-6   Online ISBN: 978-1-74241-538-3

These reports set out research on the use of and attitudes towards ‘eHealth’ (the combined use of electronic communication and technology in healthcare) among:

 the full range of licensed medical specialists in eight different segments–anaesthesia, diagnostics (radiology and pathology), internal medicine, emergency medicine, obstetrics and gynaecology (including neonatology), ophthalmology and dermatology, psychiatry and surgery

the 15 major sectors of allied health practitioners prioritised by the Department – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers, audiologists, chiropractors, dental allied health professionals, dietitians, exercise physiologists, occupational therapists, optometrists, osteopaths,  physiotherapists, podiatrists, psychologists, radiographers and sonographers, social workers and speech pathologists

The research has been framed around three ’anchor’ questions:
1. Are Australian medical specialists and allied health professionals ready to adopt and use eHealth technologies and solutions, today and in a way consistent with policy direction in the future?
2. What are the barriers impacting eHealth readiness and adoption and how can we minimise them?
3. What are the eHealth enablers and how can we apply them to drive adoption and effective usage?
