Partnering for success with Primary Health Networks

Preparation for local community engagement and healthcare provider readiness has begun in earnest with Primary Health Networks (PHNs) nationally in anticipation of the creation of My Health Record for every Australian in 2018, unless they choose not to have one. The positive support received from PHNs to date has been outstanding.

As outlined by Lizz Reay, CEO of Nepean Blue Mountains PHN, "We are really pleased and excited that My Health Record will be expanded across Australia. We were almost a little surprised by the support from the community for an electronic My Health Record in our region… Imagine how much better and safer care can be provided when this is expanded nationally."
