To assist your general practices in choosing what type of IT requirements you need for your business, we have developed a guide of things to consider when purchasing and implementing new hardware and software systems into your practice.
The guide encompasses recommendations from existing RACGP eHealth resources and relevant government websites and contains links and explanatory notes on each topic including a checklist that you can use to form part of your practice policies.
This guide does not provide specific advice regarding general practice IT requirements, as this is unique to each individual general practice.
It is recommended that you consult an IT professional when implementing new technologies in your practice.
