CHF welcomes the review into the Personally Controlled Electronic Health Records (PCEHR) System. CHF has undertaken extensive work on eHealth, particularly in relation to the PCEHR. Our submission draws on consultations with our membership, which includes organisations advocating for disease specific groups and networks, state and territory peak consumer organisations and individual consumers. CHF’s submission also draws on consultations undertaken through our Facilitating Consumer Input on the PCEHR Project, as well as previous submissions to consultations relating to the PCEHR.
