Technology has forever changed how clinicians practise medicine and how patients experience care. In Australian general practice, computer-based technologies are now commonplace.
The implementation of and innovations in computer-based technology in the area of general practice has risen over the last 5–10 years largely due to the enthusiasm and efforts of GPs who have seen the benefit these systems can bring to their practices.
The range of technology available continues to expand across the whole healthcare sector – from national infrastructure to personal health devices and online treatments.
Today’s general practice has a vast array of technology options to choose from. However, the choices and the consequences of those choices can be complex and time consuming.
We hope this guide provides you with the information you need to make informed decisions regarding the technology most appropriate for your practice.
We recommend that you use it in conjunction with the range of other RACGP eHealth resources on the use of digital technologies in general practice.
