The eHealth readiness of Australia's medical specialists - Final Report

Research limitations

Page last updated: 30 May 2011

Given the nature of the underlying hypotheses, and the desire to identify outliers, the primary research approach was calibrated to an acceptable level of residual error as described above (maximum of 11.3 percent, depending on the type of analysis being undertaken). The output of the research identified directional differences between clusters and specialties. The nature of this approach means that future research studies cannot be compared to the outcome of the primary research in this report without replicating the research methodology.
