My Health Record to go opt-out in 2019, support for automatic records “almost universal”

The federal government intends to move the My Health Record to an opt-out system in 2019 following a finding in its long-awaited evaluation report of two trial sites of the opt-out approach that there is almost universal support for the automatic creation of electronic health records, from both consumers and healthcare providers.

Pulse+IT has seen a copy of the evaluation report, which was delivered to the Department of Health last November but has not been made public before.
