My Health Record - An update webinar

Speciality Classification
General Practice ( GP ) / Family Medicine
1 hr

In January 2019 My Health Record, Australia's shared electronic health record system, moved to an opt-out model. This resulted in every Australian known to Medicare or the Department of Veterans Affairs having a My Health Record created unless they opt-ed out.

Join us, one year on, as we provide an overview and update on the system, discuss the impact of the transition to an opt-out model for general practice, outline system changes that have occurred since the transition, and what your practice needs to consider if participating in My Health Record.

Relevance to General Practice

As the primary contributors of content to the My Health Record, General Practitioners and practice teams need to stay up to date to ensure they meet their professional and legislative requirements when participating in the system.
