RACGP Technology Survey - 2016 Report

RACGP Technology Survey - 2016 Report

In October 2016, the RACGP released its annual survey to explore the views and attitudes on the use of technology in general practice. A 10-minute online survey was 
distributed to GPs across Australia. In total, 1718 GPs participated in the survey, and 1200 responses were considered for analysis. 

Our survey indicates that GPs remain optimistic about the use of eHealth technology and its ability to improve productivity and care coordination. Recent graduates (75%), followed by GPs practising for 10 years or more (60%), feel most comfortable about experimenting with emerging technologies. Information technology (IT) systems and practice processes, and issues related to patient confidentiality and privacy are still the key barriers to GPs’ eHealth adoption. 

The RACGP hopes the results provide a stimulus to discuss increased adoption of digital technologies in general practice while achieving the best health outcomes for patients.
