Breaking News: My Health Record factsheet for PLHIV

Posted in Latest News, Publications and Resources on

My Health Record (MHR) is a centralised digital database housing an individual’s health information. The information can be accessed by the individual, selected healthcare providers and various other participants in the MHR system. From 16 July 2018, the MHR scheme will transition from being ‘opt-in’ to ‘opt-out’, meaning unless an individual chooses not to participate in the scheme, an MHR account will automatically be created for them.

The fact sheet, produced by the National Association of People living with HIV Australia, has produced this factsheet to inform us of the pros and cons of My Health Record and to let PLHIV in Australia know what this will mean for us.
