Guidelines for My Health Record to improve ‘dismal’ uptake in aged care

Guidelines for the use of the My Health Record in the aged care sector are nearing completion amid hopes they can improve on the ‘dismal’ uptake of the system, with official figures showing just 14 per cent of residential aged care facilities are registered for My Health Record and of those, only three per cent are actually using it.

The Aged Care Industry IT Council (ACIITC) has been working with the Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA) on a big project looking at a range of issues for digital health in aged care, including digital infrastructure, the adoption of clinical software and its interoperability with external systems, as well as new initiatives for the My Health Record such as a transfer of care document.
