Patient access to their own information a benefit of My Health Record: ACHI
The Australasian College of Health Informatics (ACHI) has welcomed the move to expand the My Health Record to almost all Australians, saying it had long supported the concept of consumer access to health information.
The college would now like to see the system move to a data-driven model so consumers are able to be involved in the management of their care.
The college said it believed that while there are legitimate concerns about some aspects of the program, near universal coverage and availability will more effectively drive change that the current low uptake.
