Warnings: My Health Record risking young people’s health
- 'Young people may stop seeking health services for needs that are often stigmatised, such as mental health, sexual and reproductive health, substance use and gender diversity,’ warns Maggie Toko, VMIAC CEO, ‘because My Health Record will allow parents or guardians to view health information by default.’
- ‘My Health Record allows young people aged 14 to 18 years to take control of their own health record,’ said Shauna Gaebler, CEO of CoMHWA, ‘however available information is confusing and at times contradictory.’
- ‘We are deeply concerned that there has been no targeted information to young people in Australia about My Health Record,’ said Shauna Gaebler. ‘Time is running out for young people to be able to make an informed decision about their use of My Health Record’.

It should be My Health Record
While many have characterised this debate as solely about My Health Record, it is much broader.
One of the fundamental unspoken contracts that exists every time a patient sees a doctor is that all of the information obtained and recorded during a consultation will be kept confidential, unless the patient decides to release this information to a third party. This is the basis of the doctor–patient relationship.
