Request for Allied Health Professionals to Participate in Survey by 29 March

KPMG has been undertaking work for the Department of Health and Aged Care to scope strategies required to enhance the digital readiness of the allied health sector, with a particular focus on the clinical information system (CIS) requirements to enable greater adoption of My Health Record.

The submission of nominations for allied health professionals to participate in consultations was greatly appreciated and a large volume of responses were received.

To build on this work, KPMG are launching a survey to gain perspectives directly from allied health professionals. This survey is for allied health professionals in private practice and primary care settings. At this stage pharmacists are out of scope, due to the high level of digital use already in this profession.

The survey is focused on gaining the views of allied health professionals and will be used to understand:

  • information systems, including practice management and clinical information systems, being used by allied health professionals
  • factors influencing the uptake of digital technologies for allied health professionals, including resource constraints, workforce considerations, support provision, technology uptake and maturity
  • current awareness and usage of My Health Record and factors influencing success or failure of My Health Record uptake and utilisation
  • implementation support materials that might be required in Australia to improve My Health Record uptake and utilisation by allied health professionals.

Complete the survey now

The survey will be open from 10 March 2023 until 29 March 2023.

The survey is estimated to take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
