Talk About A Non-Committal Release From The AMA On The myHR And Digital Healt. I Reckon They Don’t Want A Bar Of It.
This was released a few days ago.
25 Jan 2018
The Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA) has provided the AMA with updates relevant to GPs and My Health Record. The ADHA receives considerable input and advice from AMA members.
Former AMA President, Dr Steve Hambleton, has outlined the importance of My Health Record in allowing for the straightforward and secure sharing of information. Up-to-date shared health summaries can easily be accessed by other healthcare practitioners, allowing for patients to receive continuity of care. Read more about Dr Hambleton’s experience and thoughts here.
AMA member and GP representative Dr Chris Moy has outlined the critical role My Health Record plays in improving patient care. His experience with following up on an unwell patient was made all the easier with an up-to-date My Health Record. Read more about his experience here.
My Health Record will be expanded to an opt-out model in 2018 – information on this can be found here and the Department will be providing the AMA with updates, which will be communicated in future articles in GPNN.
Here is the link:
I can see it all now – the ADHA wanting some publicity so saying to the AMA we want a release on what wonderful things are going in Digital Health – a per our Memorandum.
The AMA says OK and adopts the most minimalist of minimalist approaches and you see what comes out!
Barely enough wind to move the curtains!
