AusHealthIT Poll Number 393 – Results – 22nd October, 2017.

Here are the results of the poll.

Should 'Secondary Use' Of Patient Data Held In The myHR Require Explicit Consent Of The Individual Concerned?

Yes 95% (147)

No 4% (6)

I Have No Idea 1% (1)

Total votes: 154

It seems pretty clear individuals want a say about the use of their myHR data

Any insights welcome as a comment, as usual, especially regarding what might be done to have consent be the norm?

A really great turnout of votes!

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

Unfortunately David going on previous situation where it is clear from your polls the majority (and usually and large majority) indicate one preference Canberra goes the completely opposite direction. Based on that I guess that consent will not be sort from inderviduals. I doubt that the system would have the smarts to implement it anyway.
