In March 2017 we released a Conversation EDU article to ask ‘Why aren’t more people using the My Health Record’ . At the time, final touches were being put on two journal articles, one detailing the health literacy demands of My Health Record itself, and the other examining the health literacy demands of online consumer facing information about the My Health Record.
Both of those articles are now accepted, with details as follows:
Walsh, L., Hemsley, B., Allan, M., Adams, N., Balandin, S., Georgiou, A., Higgins, I., McCarthy, S., & Hill, S. (In press). The ehealth literacy demands of Australia’s My Health Record: a heuristic evaluation of usability. Perspectives in Health Information Management.
