General practice data and electronic clinical decision support

The George Institute made a submission to the Department of Health’s two-stage consultation process to inform thinking around primary health care data and the use of electronic clinical decision support systems in primary health care.

We believe primary health care should be at the heart of the Australian health system. It needs to be of high value, integrated, equitable and patient-centred. It should be readily available and accessible for people across their life course, responding to acute needs at critical life stages and proactive in the intervening periods to promote health and well-being.

The George Institute strongly believes, as the Issues Paper states, recent challenges have reinforced the importance of primary health care in Australia.
