Survey: Help us understand your use of digital health technology

Published 10 November 2020, revised 13 December 2020

*Update: we’ve extended the deadline for survey responses to December 24, 2020.

The use of digital health systems is becoming more and more important in modern health practice. The Australian government is also increasingly investing in, and encouraging use of, a range of digital health technologies, such as My Health Record, secure messaging and e-Prescribing.

A common factor in the ability to access digital health technology is the use of a clinical information system – practice software that allows you to make patient bookings, record patient notes, and send and store referrals and reports. However, the clinical information systems used by allied health businesses may not have all the functionality required to access these digital health technologies.

To support better understanding of the use of digital systems by allied health providers, and to support engagement with the software industry, Allied Health Professions Australia is working with a wide range of allied health professional associations and the Australian government to survey practitioners about their use of digital health technology. The information you share with us will support work to ensure that allied health professionals can access digital health technology for the benefit of your patients and your practice.

We would be grateful if you could take the time to support this work by responding to this survey before it closes on Thursday 24 December 2020.

Participants will be able to enter the prize draw to WIN one of four $250 Prepaid Visa Cards. Depending on your answers, the survey should take approximately 10- 15 minutes to complete.

The survey is being conducted by independent research agency, Survey Matters, so you can be sure your responses will reman confidential. All results will be reported in aggregate only.  You can view Survey Matters privacy policy here.

Thank you for your participation.
