Webinar 1: An Introduction to My Health Record

This webinar introduced My Health Record and outlined its benefits, features and functionalities. It is useful for healthcare providers who are new to My Health Record and wanting to learn what it is and how it can enable better information-sharing and improved clinical outcomes.

The Australian Government has invested $374.2 million over two years to transition Australia’s My Health Record system from a self-register model to an opt-out model, and this will mean that from mid-2018 every Australian will have a My Health Record unless they choose not to.

The Agency will be working closely with the clinical peak bodies to support their members in becoming familiar with and confident in using the My Health Record system. As part of this work, the Agency will be hosting a series of healthcare provider-focussed webinars covering an A-Z of My Health Record.

With My Health Record self-registrations having recently surpassed 5 million and the system’s national expansion fast-approaching, now is an opportune time for healthcare providers to get to know My Health Record and embed it into their everyday clinical practice.
