Australians will have from July 16 to October 15, 2018, to opt out of having an electronic health record.
Those choosing not to have a My Health Record can opt out at the My Health Record website or by calling 1800 723 471. So far, 5.7 million people are in the system.
"The protection of patient information is critical, and the My Health Record system has strong safeguards in place to protect the health data. It is also subject to some of the strongest legislation in the world to prevent unauthorised use," the Australian Digital Health Agency said in a blog post.
"Australians can cancel their My Health Record at any time after the end of the opt-out period -- or create one, if they opted out."
