DoH drops requirement for Health Care Homes to use My Health Record

The federal Department of Health (DoH) has dropped a requirement that patients participating in the Health Care Homes trial have a My Health Record, despite it being a centrepiece of the trial model announced in 2016.

The department has told participating practices that it had received feedback that the requirement had caused a small number of potential HCH patients to withdraw their interest, and it may prove a barrier to other patients wanting to participate.
