Survey on industry views of proposed PCEHR legislation
The Health Informatics Society of Australia (HISA) and the Health Information Management Association of Australia (HIMAA) are looking to gauge their members' views on the proposed legislative changes to the PCEHR released in a discussion paper recently.
HISA and HIMAA are hosting an in-depth survey on the proposals to help inform a report representing the views of members and stakeholders that they will submit to the Department of Health.
Compiled by Peter Croll, the survey asks 44 detailed questions that correspond closely to the discussion paper, although participants can choose to only answer questions they feel is important.
Dr Croll has divided it into five sections corresponding with those from the paper: names and definitions, governance, individual's participation, obligations of parties, and privacy.
The question include agreement or disagreement with proposed changes to the name of the system from the PCEHR to the My Health Record, and views on the change to an opt-out model.
The survey closes next Wednesday, June 17, at 5pm EDST. The full discussion paper is available from www.ehealth.gov.au. Submissions close on June 24.
