Quote Of The Year - Paul Shetler - "Its not Your Health Record it's a Government Record Of Your Health Information"

Sunday, August 28, 2016

AusHealthIT Poll Number 333 – Results – 28th August, 2016.

Here are the results of the poll.

Should myHR Registrees Be Notified (e.g. By E-Mail) When Material Of Any Kind Is Uploaded To Their myHR?

Yes 99% (107)

No 1% (1)

I Have No Idea 0% (0)

Total votes: 108

What amazing unanimity…. seems people think you should be told if your record is changed by anyone! The clearest poll ever I reckon...

A great turnout of votes.

Again, many, many thanks to all those that voted!

Talking about uploads - and statistics:

My Health Record Usage
Clinical Document Uploads

Total number of clinical documents uploaded to the My Health Record system by healthcare providers.

Shared health summary 267,345

Does that mean that 267,345 people have a shared health summary? Or that since July 2012, that 267,345 shared health summaries have been uploaded?

There is a big difference. The government says that a shared health summary cannot be edited. This means that any correction or update will result in a new shared health summary being uploaded.

If that 267,345 is the number of people with a shared health summary, then that’s about 1.1% of the Australian population (of 24million), which is pretty pathetic after 4 odd years.

However, if the average shared health summary has been updated once, that means only 133,673 i.e. 0.55% Australians have a shared health record - a miserable return on $2billion and counting.
