After a year plagued with privacy concerns, outages and the opt-out date being extended until 2019, it comes as no surprise that My Health Record was a popular search term for Australians in 2018. "My Health Record" was the number four searched "News" topic and "How to opt-out of My Health Record" was the number one search in the "How to...?" category.
Today the Government worked with the Senate crossbench to extend the opt-out period for #MyHealthRecord.
The opt-out period will be extended until January 31, 2019, however, it’s important to note that people can opt-out at any time.

DTA proffers ‘six keys to success’ with whole-of-government digital service platforms
- Build trust and confidence – we will need to earn the trust and confidence of the public, governments and other users of digital platforms.
- Transform our culture, skills and capabilities – we will need a culture that cultivates innovation, and access to the right people with the right skills and capabilities to make digital platforms successful.
- Use technology and data to connect and unify government services – we will develop digital platforms that are interoperable, flexible and extensible.
- Strengthen digital leadership, governance and accountabilities – we will define clear roles and accountabilities to govern digital platforms.
- Address funding and legislative barriers – we will work across government to remove barriers that stop or hinder cross-government collaboration or adoption of digital platforms.
- Foster collaboration and innovation across government and beyond – we will collaborate and engage with a much broader audience to fully realise the benefits of digital platforms.
