It is widely expected in Australia that digital health solutions such as MyHealthRecord (MyHR) have vast potential to enable easier, safer and faster patientcare. Being the gateway to the health system, the general practice environment has been one of the target areas for MyHR adoption. This doctoral qualitative research aims to investigate MyHR adoption in the general practices of Victoria and explore its users’ views/experiences. This paper presents the survey results, a component of the study which was distributed in 2017 to general practices and its consumers. The survey was designed based on research questions to gain users views, experiences and ideas for improving adoption. Findings: There were 230 valid responses which included 179 consumers/patients and 51 healthcare providers/staff members.
