My Health Record: Another step along today’s digital road
The area attracting the most attention is the expansion of My Health Record (MHR), a Federal Government initiative that will see every Australian have an MHR by the end of the year, unless they choose to opt out. Through MHR, practitioners are able to access patient information like shared health summaries, discharge summaries, prescription and dispense records, pathology reports and diagnostic imaging reports.
Dentists are currently able to participate in the MHR, as they are Healthcare Providers registered with AHPRA. If a dentist does not have clinical software that connects to the MHR, they can view the system via the National Provider Portal (NPP).

Improving data quality can lead to better health outcomes: RACGP expert
‘Anecdotally, the problem of low-quality data is fairly high. It’s mainly a misunderstanding amongst GPs that it might be useful to enter it in the right place at the time of seeing the patient,’ he told newsGP.
‘People are busy, so they just do what they have to do with the patient in front of them. They don’t think that what they record will be potentially useful in future.’
