On 12 March 2022, enhancements to the online process for registering healthcare provider organisations with the My Health Record system went live in the Healthcare Provider Online Services (HPOS).
The updates are aimed at ensuring that all healthcare provider organisations who register with the My Health Record system are aware of key obligations.
The revised registration process includes a particular focus on Rule 42 of the My Health Records Rule 2016 which requires organisations to establish, communicate and enforce a My Health Record security and access policy at the workplace. Healthcare provider organisations will now be asked to attest, at the time of registration, that their organisation’s policy has been developed and reasonably addresses prescribed topics.
The updates do not modify or create any new obligations for healthcare provider organisations that register with the My Health Record system. Rather, they are aimed at ensuring that healthcare provider organisations are aware of existing obligations at the time of registration.
