Berrigan NSW takes the lead in connecting to My Health Record.
March 2018
 
Welcome to our March issue of #Share.

This month we invite you to find out how you can participate in implementation of the National Digital Health Strategy and to share your views on the Framework for Action.
Australia’s National Digital Health Strategy – Safe, Seamless and Secure outlines a vision for digital health up to 2022, and we have been working with partners across the community to develop a detailed roadmap for its delivery. Earlier this month, we announced the draft Framework for Action and consultation to guide implementation of the strategy’s seven key priority areas. We are looking forward to feedback from consumers, healthcare providers, jurisdictions, peak bodies, vendors and developers across Australia. Submissions are open until next Friday 6 April via our feedback form.

Berrigan in NSW (population 922)
became the first town in Australia to connect all medical services to My Health Record. We travelled there to celebrate this milestone with the locals and to hear their stories.

How people use My Health Record depends on their needs. Dr Monica Trujillo and Vicki Ibrahim recommend that pharmacists view the My Health Record as a
decision support tool to assist in their medicines reconciliation. Meanwhile, in Queensland, people are now getting access to more pathology results after InfinityPATH’s announcement that it is now uploading reports to My Health Record.

Lastly, Prof Meredith Makeham reflects on ways in which the Global Digital health Partnership, which Australia co-founded,
can help support improvements in digital health services in this country and overseas.

From everyone at the Agency, we wish you a very safe and enjoyable Easter holiday.
