The world is slowly moving to an E-Health environment. Computers are becoming an essential part of how health is delivered, just as they are a part of all other aspects of life. Yet the adoption of computers is patchy. In some jurisdictions it is the hospital sector that is highly computerized, and in others it is primary care. This paper examines the adoption of computers in general practice in Australia, and provides a theoretical explanation for the reasons general practices adopted computers, while hospitals did not. The application of Complex Adaptive Systems not only explains the computerization, but provides lessons for others in promoting computers in the health sector.

General Practice online journals are vital part of health care delivery systems. These online journals allow free and unrestricted transaction of data among the health care readers. The emergence of these journals was a breakthrough in the field of medicine and gave platform to researchers and medical students to share their views and ideas about the advancements in this field of research. As the health sector itself is getting computerized in all way around this approach is also positive.
