ADHA touts growth in My Health Records with clinical information

Thirteen million of the 22.7 million My Health Records now contain some clinical information, new figures from the Australian Digital Health Agency show, although most consumers appear to be uninterested in viewing their records.

In answers to a question on notice from a Senate Estimates hearing in October last year, ADHA said the total number of records accessed by a consumer was 2.07 million since the system launched in July 2012, with nearly half accessed more than once between March and October 2019.

The only real measure of the worth of this is if it improves health outcomes for the patients. ADHA does not publish statistics that allow evaluation of health outcomes. Numbers of records in the system is not a useful measure, except to emphasise how much personal and sensitive data they have stored.
