The Australian Digital Health Agency in partnership with the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care is conducting a project to establish routine use of the My Health Record system by clinicians in hospital emergency departments.
A model has been developed based on the My Health Record participation trials conducted in the Primary Health Networks (PHNs) of Nepean Blue Mountains and Northern Queensland, where the majority of the local population has a My Health Record. The Commission has collaborated with hospitals within these PHNs in development of the model. The model will be piloted in other hospitals in 2018.
The project is led by a senior emergency department clinician and is overseen by the Agency, the Commission, NSW Health and Queensland Health, as well as consumer and clinical representatives. Stakeholders and consumers have been consulted via roundtables, workshops and targeted interviews.
As part of this project, a literature review was conducted. The findings from this review address two principle research questions:
