During these times of social distancing and remote consultations, new and existing digital health technologies can be used to improve continuity of care for your patients. 

The Australian Digital Health Agency is running a series of free interactive sessions for GPs, practice managers and practice nurses interested in learning more about My Health Record and how to use it most effectively in routine practice.

The instructor will use a software simulation platform to demonstrate how to:

  • access a patient’s My Health Record using medical software
  • use filters to find documents
  • view documents and overviews
  • enter access codes for patients with protected documents/records
  • upload documents to My Health Record
  • ensure appropriate security and access governance mechanisms are in place

There will also be opportunities to ask questions and troubleshoot My Health Record issues.

These demonstrations will be run on weekly basis at varying times throughout the day. The schedule for the next six weeks is outlined in the table below:
