Budget 2017: Where the MyHR money is coming from and going to

The $374.2 million announced in yesterday's federal budget to extend the My Health Record system to all Australians includes an additional year to fund the operation of the system, with a target of having opt-out fully implemented by December 31, 2018.

The budget papers show that the Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA) will receive $84.5m in 2017-18 and $211.3m in 2018-19 as part of the overall package, which extends the operation of the MyHR and the national digital health infrastructure, to July 2019.
