Fewer than 2pc opt out of My Health Record as one million records go live

Almost a million people living in two trial sites of the opt-out model for the My Health Record are now able to access their newly created records, as the trial moves into its next stage.

Just over 971,000 My Health Records have been created across the two sites, with an opt-out rate of 1.9 per cent. This is consistent with international experience with opt-out systems for electronic health records, a spokeswoman for the Department of Health said.
