ADHA to launch My Health Record provider readiness program

A provider readiness program that will see every clinician in Australia made aware of the My Health Record and how to direct patients to the opt-out procedure is set to kick off in the next month or two, followed by an extensive communications campaign beginning next year aimed at the general public.

Australian Digital Health Agency CEO Tim Kelsey said the agency is also planning to begin its promised consultation on interoperability in the next two months, which will see a draft set of standards developed for the approval of the COAG Health Council and will most probably include a recommendation to mandate the use of the Individual Healthcare Identifier (IHI) throughout the digital health system.
