Feds introduce privacy and record deletion amendments to My Health Record act

An amendment to the My Health Record act that explicitly outlaws the disclosure of MyHR information to law enforcement agencies without a court order has been introduced to federal parliament.

The My Health Records Amendment (Strengthening Privacy) Bill 2018 also includes provisions for the permanent deletion of a record once the person has cancelled it. Previously, it was required to be held for 30 years after the person’s death.
