SA Health not allowing uploads of clinical documents to MyHR for under-18s
GPs have criticised an SA Health policy directive that bars personnel from uploading clinical documents such as pathology reports or discharge summaries to the My Health Record for children and young people under the age of 18.
SA Health has been uploading discharge summaries to the system since 2013, with pathology and diagnostic imaging reports being uploaded from May last year.
However, this is restricted to patients over the age of 18, with an SA Health directive stating that “where a patient is under the age of 18, no documents will be uploaded by SA Health personnel to the MHR system” and alluding to the potential to cause harm.
