Malaysia has started the initiative to implement Heath Information Technologies since the establishment of the country's telemedicine blueprint in July 1997. The term Telemedicine was later changed to Telehealth, and the approach is used as a tool to reshape the healthcare delivery system to becoming more virtual, distributive and integrated by utilizing the telecommunications, information and multimedia technologies. Previous studies have highlighted the need to integrate information between public and private healthcare. Therefore, it is important to identify the outcome of the implementation of the Clinical Information System (CIS) in private healthcare in achieving data integration. The three main aspects to be explored in CIS implementation are CIS components implementation in General Practitioners' (GPs), CIS implementation effectiveness and GPs' willingness towards integration. Semi-structured interviews were conducted at ten General Practitioner clinics. Findings show that the implementation of CIS has been well accepted in GP clinics. It is demonstrated that the computer system infrastructure in place in GP clinics is prepared for data integration; and three of the effectiveness of CIS implementation have been found in these clinics. Further, GPs positively agreed on the implementation of data sharing with some justification to be fulfilled to make sure it is well developed. This study contributed to assessing the readiness of data integration from GPs' perspectives within Malaysia's healthcare system.
