Redesigned Personal Health Record

The Abbott Government is redesigning Australia’s personal health record, renamed myHealth Record, in an effort to improve the national electronic medical records system. The upgraded system will have an opt-out function so patients will be automatically enrolled, and will feature more user-friendly interfaces. The new system aims to ensure that all doctors, nurses, and pharmacists across the country have instant access to the information they need to treat patients effectively. A fully functioning national e-health system could save taxpayers around $2.5 billion per year by reducing inefficiencies in care, according to the government.
