Episode Twenty Eight | Data MyHealthRecord | Data Deep Dive

Monday, 15 February 2021 | Dr Travis Brown

Health records are arguably the single most important and personal collection of data anyone can have. With records containing doctor visits, consultation notes, pathology results, radiology reports, medications, allergies, etc., it is hard to overstate its significance.

In fact, these records can save lives.

The Australian Government has implemented an opt-out arrangement for MyHealthRecord and as such, there has been a rise in the number of records available.

However, this venture has not been without its stumbles, detractors, and challenges.

We discuss medical records with Dr Chris Moy, who has been a national leader in developing and promoting My Health Record, the electronic ‘filing system’ of Australians’ individual health histories.
