Under the My Health Records Act 2012, health information in My Health Record may be collected, used and disclosed “for any purpose” with the consent of the healthcare recipient. In addition, one of the functions of the System Operator (the Australian Digital Health Agency) is “to prepare and provide de-identified data for research and public health purposes.” Before these provisions of the Act will be implemented, a framework for secondary use of My Health Record system data must be established.
HealthConsult was engaged to assist the Australian Government in developing a framework for the secondary use of data in the My Health Record system for research, policy, system use, quality improvement, and evaluation activities. HealthConsult’s role is to develop a draft Framework and associated draft Implementation Plan that will facilitate the secondary uses of My Health Record system data.
A Public Consultation Paper was released, and a series of surveys and workshops have been held. This webinar, presented by HealthConsult, will summarise the main themes raised over the course of the consultation period.
