AbstractThe Integrated Health Records study was undertaken in response to a recommendation made by the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Family and Community Affairs for the design and deployment of a national health information system based on integrated health records. In order to identify and describe the key issues involved in the implementation of such a system, interviews were conducted with informants representing major groups in the health industry - consumers, providers, administrators, policy makers, researchers and health informaticians. The results of these interviews have been compiled as a guide-line to policy makers and system developers involved in any future construction of a health information system. Issues covered in the interviews include shortcomings in the existing health information system; potential users of a national information system; potential uses of a national information system; types of benefits accrued from these uses; form in which the national system might take; types of constraints (e.g. legal, social, economic, logistic) that would affect the form of the system; how issues of ownership and privacy affect the implementation of such a system; how a national system could be implemented; barriers that need to be overcome or avoided to successfully implement a national system; costs and risks associated with such a venture and how long it would take to develop and implement the system.
