Privacy and Digital Health

The protection of our privacy is one of the key priorities leading up to the widespread adoption of digital health in Australia.

Privacy compliance is a fundamental principle for the Agency, both in terms of meeting legal obligations and community expectations. The Agency is committed to the ongoing consideration of privacy within the context of its work with a view to avoiding and mitigating privacy risks.

A privacy management framework has been developed to ensure that privacy considerations are integrated into the design, management and policy development associated with the range of digital health initiatives across the Agency's work programme.
