Digital health has significant potential in health and healthcare system improvement. My Health Record (MyHR), one of digital health solutions, has been one of the focus in Australia for past few years. Aiming to initiate a study of MyHR adoption in general practices, this paper brings up results of systematically reviewed literature. Four phased tool supported approach was employed and thematic analysis was conducted to describe the findings of the review. Three main themes were identified, focusing on MyHR system design/developments, its change management and evaluation. Evaluation was detailed further into eight sub themes related to MyHR intentions and outcomes, workflow conundrum, usability and effectiveness, awareness and knowledge, personal control, ethical considerations, impact of policy and economics and MyHR comparison worldwide. The literature drew a holistic picture about MyHR system and its adoption. There is some knowledge about the impacts of MyHR in the moral orders of the medical practices but the details and extent of this impact on general practices with this integration is noted as a gap, hence, setting direction for future research.
