My Health Record
The My Health Record scheme comes into effect on November 15 and all Australians have until then to decide whether or not to be apart of it.
Every Australian will soon have a ‘My Health Record’. For those not in the know this is an online summary about one’s health information. Ideally, this will help medical staff to make timely medical decisions. The response is not all positive as some have raised major concerns over the scheme and its potential security risks. Assistant Professor Dr Bruce Baer Arnold from the School of Law at the University of Canberra joined the show today.
