By the end of 2018 every Australian will have a digital My Health Record, unless they actively choose not to. Having a My Health Record means that a summary of a person’s important health information like allergies, current conditions and treatments, medication details, pathology reports or diagnostic imaging reports can be digitally and securely stored in one place.
Melissa Robinson from WA Primary Health Alliance and Donna Harding from the Australian Digital Health Agency will provide a detailed overview of My Health Record and what it involves for both the practitioner and the consumer.
Dee Harding is a registered nurse (Post Grad Certificate in Clinical Nursing) with previous experience as Clinical Coordinator with Alzheimer’s Australia WA and Clinical Nurse Manager within the Aged Care sector. She is currently working for the Digital Health Agency as the WA Primary Health Network Education and Support Lead for My Health Record.
Melissa Robinson has an undergraduate degree in Health Sciences at Edith Cowan University and has worked in health promotion for the last eight years. Previously she worked at Diabetes WA in chronic disease management and prevention before joining the My Health Record team at WA Primary Health Alliance.
