The My eRecord Shared Electronic Record aims to improve the quality of life for people living with a disability by providing more complete, appropriate and timely sharing of information amongst their formal and informal support systems, including service providers, health care professionals, carers and others in a community. The Improvement Foundation has been engaged by G8EHR Board on behalf of eight large service providers to increase the uptake of ‘My eRecord’, specifically amongst people living with a disability and service providers living in Queensland.
Based on proven success from working with National E-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA) to increase usage of the Personally Controlled Electronic Health Records, the Improvement Foundation will support the eight organisations to embed change and develop new processes. This will be done via four learning workshops, held over a three month period. These workshops will bring two representatives from each of the eight organisations; Cerebral Palsy League of Queensland, Uniting Care Community, Centacare, Spinal Injuries Association, FSG Australia, Multicap, Life without Barriers and Endeavour Foundation, to learn from experts and collaborate with their peers on ways to embed sustainable new processes within their existing workflow.
In order for all eight organisations to know if their changes are resulting in improvements, the Improvement Foundation’s has worked with the group and identified four specific measures, which will be collected electronically and reported back to participants as bar graphs.
Additionally, to provide an all-inclusive approach to user uptake, the Improvement Foundation will also provide dedicated Help Desk support to assist users with the registration process and any general technical problems that they may encounter.
The final measure of improvement for the project is for 1000 people with a disability to have consented and registered onto the ‘My eRecord’ with an event summary uploaded by March 2014.
