Delivering Primary Health Care in a Digital Age CME Series

8 Points


Introduction

Digital technologies have become essential resources in primary care and their uptake is growing with the past decade seeing rapid integration of technology in a range of areas that support primary care and essential public health functions. In this context, common uses of digital technologies include searching medical knowledge resources, facilitating clinical support, monitoring quality of care, and mapping and monitoring the spread of infectious diseases, as well as tracking supplies of drugs and vaccines. Integrating clinical support tools and referral systems into primary health care can help coordinate care and ensure its continuity across primary, secondary, acute and aged care services. Electronic health records capture information about an individual’s health, medical conditions, medications and key events, which can be shared for referrals and timely clinical decision-making. Digital technologies can help improve the patient journey. They can prevent duplication of care processes and enhance communication between providers as well as avoid unplanned hospitalizations and visits for urgent care. Ensuring that the general public has access to  imely, expert advice by telephone in health emergencies can save lives.
