The Australian Digital Health Agency is pleased to announce nearly 20,000 My Health Record education kits are being distributed to healthcare providers and Australia Post offices across Australia. The kits will equip providers and Agency partners with information and resources to help them advise all Australians about My Health Record.
The toolkits contain a broad mixture of consumer facing materials to inform Australians of the benefits of My Health Record, privacy and security controls, examples of data included in My Health Record, and how people can opt-out or find more information. The materials include information brochures, fact sheets, posters, notepads, and tent cards.
The rollout of the kits will help Australians make informed decisions during the opt-out period for My Health Record, which begins on Monday 16 July and runs until 15 October 2018.
