15 successful bidders to share in $8.5m for My Health Record test bed trials
Fifteen projects have been chosen to trial new approaches to healthcare delivery using digital health technologies under the federal government's digital health test bed program, including one involving IPN medical centres and three PHNs that will use Precedence Health Care's MediTracker app to access the My Health Record and GP records for patients with chronic illnesses.
Health Minister Greg Hunt announced the successful bidders at the official launch of the Australian Digital Health Agency's national digital health strategy and framework for action in Sydney today. They will share in $8.5 million in funding to test mature technologies and scale them up for use across the country.
