This looks very much like a myHR replacement that provides emergency and away from home access to you important medical information.
And the Government won’t use / exploit your data?
I also be if you want to download / delete your record you can. Indeed read their security policy….

CareMonkey is a secure site, designed with privacy and security as our highest priorities. We apply stringent processes to keep your data safe throughout design, development, testing and day to day operations.

Who would have thought?

What’s the chances of a my health record version waiting to be launched on the back of all this government sponsor advertising?

@July 05 2018 8:00 PM. I think it would be safe to assume that it’s is highly likely. With the ADHA using an alternative portal to myGov it is likely many people will be caught up in any such undertaking as the optout portal unlike myGov will not be a familiar website, or familiar look and feel.

It is the pharmacies and GP practices that are probably more at risk

8:00 PM, HealthEngine beat them to it and set the ground rules for safe seamless and secret harvesting of patient information. The ADHA should rename their system myIDATM

"safe seamless and secret harvesting of patient information" I like it.

It's much more specific and meaningful than the vacuous "safe, seamless and secure" which doesn't refer to anything. Reminds me of hypnosis techniques.
