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.
