Implementation and Adoption
Progress is continuously being made in digital health implementation.
Aspects of the My Health Record system and digital health infrastructure are being implemented within a broad range of Australian healthcare settings, including public and private enterprises, hospitals and community services.
Working with our delivery partners, we have made significant progress in operationalising and enhancing the essential foundations and infrastructure required to enable a truly national My Health Record system.
PCEHR means the My Health Record, formerly the "Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record", within the meaning of the My Health Records Act 2012 (Cth), formerly called the Personally Controlled Electronic Health Records Act 2012 (Cth).
By operation of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability (Establishing the Australian Digital Health Agency) Rule 2016, on 1 July 2016, all the assets and liabilities of NEHTA will vest in the Australian Digital Health Agency.
