Rapid access clinics and My Health Record data for cardiology risk stratification
A group of researchers and cardiologists from western Sydney plan to investigate the use of My Health Record data to optimise care at Westmead Hospital's rapid access cardiology clinic (RACC) and look at the feasibility of developing a cardiac care app.
The plans form one of 15 digital health test beds that received funding recently from the Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA), which are looking at using the My Health Record and its data to improve care delivery.
The Western Sydney cardiology care test bed is led by Westmead cardiologist and scientist Clara Chow, known best in mHealth for her work on the TEXT ME trial of SMS messages for reducing risk factors for secondary heart attacks.
