In March 2017 we released a Conversation EDU article to ask ‘Why aren’t more people using the My Health Record’ . During the writing up of that article, we were finalising touches on two journal articles, one looking at the health literacy demands of My Health Record itself, and another looking at the health literacy demands of consumer facing information available online, 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.
Walsh, L., Hill, S., Allan, M., Balandin, S., Georgiou, A., Higgins, I., Krall, B., McCarthy, S., Hemsley, B. (In press). A content and quality analysis of the consumer-facing online information about My Health Record: Implications for increasing knowledge and awareness to facilitate uptake and use. Health Information Management Journal.
