Digital tools in general practice survey

Survey results 2021

The use of digital technology in Australian general practices is constantly evolving. The COVID-19 pandemic has catapulted technology into Australian general practice and the past two years has seen widespread uptake of tools to support remote care of patients including telehealth, and electronic prescribing.  

Since 2015, the RACGP has surveyed members to gain insights and opinions on the use of technology and digital tools in their practice to understand what systems are being used, where future investment is needed, and key technology challenges faced by GPs and their teams.  

Through December 2021 the RACGP invited GPs and GPs in training across Australia, to once again have their say through an online survey lasting approximately 15-20 minutes. 

The results are now available for the 2021 survey.
