ADHA gears up for My Health Record release 8, mobile enablement

A comprehensive view of medications information, an enhanced search capability for pathology reports and moves to upload diagnostic imaging reports from jurisdictions other than the Northern Territory are some of the promised new features of release 8 of the My Health Record (MyHR), which the Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA) is hoping to release this June.

The agency is also working on a mobile enablement program that is developing FHIR APIs to allow information to be pulled down from the MyHR into third-party applications, with the harder work of pushing data up to the system still a work in progress.

Kate, your statement "The pathology sector has insisted that the full pathologist's report, rather than just results, be uploaded to the system as a CDA-wrapped PDF for safety reasons. There are none on the system as yet, and only 35,580 diagnostic imaging reports, all generated in the Northern Territory and none from the private sector" indicates to me as an external observer that these findings (and including the other upload/usage statistics) of the My Health record indicate that the structure, function and desire to access the information is inherently flawed. I am happy to be proven wrong.
In addition medication management is such a dynamic and dangerous care function and should be managed at the patient care interface and must be timely-a feature I think not possible in the current record architecture and dynamics.
