From the Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA):
Welcome to the second edition of #Share and best wishes to all our readers across Australia and overseas for a safe and happy festive season.
In 2018, every Australian will receive a My Health Record unless they choose not to, which will transform their health journey. As Dr Michael Gannon, Australian Medical Association (AMA) President recently tweeted,
#MyHealthRecord is the future. Some of the worst funded areas of the health care system nonetheless leading the way on #eHealth. Importance of Diagnostic Imaging, Pathology and General Practice to patient care too often underestimated #auspol.
Digital health will be further transformed next year with the implementation of the Framework for Action which delivers the priorities in Australia’s National Digital Health Strategy – Safe, Seamless and Secure. Providers, consumer and industry leaders, researchers and the governments of Australia are currently being consulted on the Framework for Action.
This edition of the ADHA newsletter provides updates on all of the key areas of work of the Agency.
