The ADHA Is Telling Those Who Asked To Opt-out Where To Next!

I was forwarded this e-mail just now - so the process seems to have started.

My Health Record Opt-out Dates

My Health Record opt-out dates
Hello,

You are receiving this email because you registered your email address at myhealthrecord.gov.au to find out more information about how to opt-out of the My Health Record system.

If you do not want a My Health Record, you must register your choice between 16 July and 15 October 2018 during the opt-out period. It is not possible to opt-out of having a record before the opt-out period starts.

The opt-out period will not apply to individuals who have previously chosen to have a My Health Record, or were included in the Nepean Blue Mountains or North Queensland opt-out trials in 2016. Individuals who have an existing My Health Record can cancel their record at any time. Instructions on cancelling a record can be found on the
My Health Record website.

Once the opt-out period starts you will receive another email letting you know that the opt-out period has started and what to do if you still want to opt-out.

A My Health Record is a secure online summary of an individual’s key health information. 1 in 5 Australians already have one. It’s an individual’s choice who sees their My Health Record, what’s in it and who it is shared with. My Health Record has safeguards in place to protect an individuals’ information including encryption, firewalls and secure login.

For further information about the My Health Record, please visit the
My Health Record website.

Thank you,

The My Health Record System Operator

Yeah, I got one of these emails also.

Their wording is a bit sloppy, though. They say:

"My Health Record has safeguards in place to protect an individuals’ information including encryption, firewalls and secure login."

Surely this should read:

"My Health Record has safeguards in place to protect each individual's information including encryption, firewalls and secure login."

Apart from the mis-placed apostrophe (tut tut!), the reader is left wondering which individual is lucky enough to have the safeguards in place?
Come on AHDA, if you are spending $100 million on comms, then please take some care in editing!

I am a bit puzzled how they got this site passed their world leading cyber security centre. The seem to have deployed the right ‘things’ just not used properly. Was a bit simple to identify a few vulnerabilities. Still it is only an advertise site so no harm I guess
