HISA VIC - Can My Health Record support patient-centred, clinical-enabled healthcare?

The pursuit of digital health systems, particularly EMR, has been gaining traction in most states and the commonwealth. The recent introduction of My Health Record (MHR) opt-out poses many interesting questions and challenges that impact the course of Australia’s digital health adoption.

In this interactive, workshop-style forum, an eminent and diverse group of panellists will explore the various implications of My Health Record adoption, including:

  • What do clinicians expect from MHR?
  • What do patients need from MHR?
  • How will regulators ensure information safety and security?
  • What role do developers play in an environment with over 20 million people enrolled to use MHR?
  • How do healthcare providers deal with gaps in medical record completeness?

Register early as seats are strictly limited.
