ATC 2018: My Health Record to be clinically useful by year's end: Kelsey

The My Health Record will hold useful clinical content and have comprehensive coverage of the patient population by the end of this year, fulfilling two of the key requirements for clinicians to begin using the system in earnest, Australian Digital Health Agency Tim Kelsey says.

Mr Kelsey told the Australian Telehealth Conference (ATC 2018) in Sydney this morning that by the end of the year, about 85 per cent of private pathology reports, 75-80 per cent of dispensed medicines information and a significant volume of radiology reports will be uploading to the system by the end of 2018, roughly coinciding with the time that the opt-out system is fully in place.
