A Little Post Christmas Reading - A Privacy Impact Statement on the PCEHR.

This has just appeared - issued when hoping we were all not watching it seems:

Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record (PCEHR) - Privacy Impact Assessment Report

Privacy Impact Assessment on the PCEHR system

A detailed Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) into the PCEHR system has been undertaken by Minter Ellison Lawyers and Salinger Privacy. The PIA report made 112 recommendations.

Departmental response to PCEHR PIA

Following a consideration of these recommendations by the Department:
  • 77 recommendations have been accepted or supported in full;
  • 26 recommendations have been accepted in principle or in part;
  • eight recommendations have not been accepted; and
  • one recommendation is subject to further consideration.

Of the eight recommendations not accepted, the department would seek views of the Senate Community Affairs Committee on six where an implementation would be feasible. For remaining two, the department considers that implementing these recommendations would not deliver their intended objectives.
HTML versions of these reports are being prepared.
