Govt puts Tyde's future in doubt by banning insurers from My Health Record data

The decision by Health Minister Greg Hunt to prohibit health insurers from involvement in the My Health Record system has put the future of Sydney start-up Tyde in doubt, with the company deciding in the next week whether to continue or to wind up.

Tyde has developed a mobile platform that allows consumers to access their My Health Record through an app and to link health records from disparate sources together. It has been in trials with a number of care co-ordination groups including insurers to use the platform to support consumers with chronic health conditions.

Indeed this may be fatal for Tyde but not for MyHR.
