My Health Records: Should You Opt-Out?
A digital health record will be created for every Australian, unless you opt-out before the 15th of October. It will be a record of your allergies, medical conditions, previous or current medication, test results, and any other information uploaded by your doctor, and shared between medical providers. However, many people have serious concerns with privacy and the safety of the data.
