Towards an inclusive My Health Record: Tackling evidence, engagement, and participation in safe and person-centred healthcare

We invite you to join an audience of consumers, healthcare providers, policy-makers, and researchers to consider burning issues now surrounding implementation of a person-centred My Health Record – is this possible? How can healthcare consumers/patients drive this process? What are the views of all key stakeholders in implementation?

We welcome you to join our Keynote Prof Johanna Westbrook (Director, Centre for Health Systems and Safety Research Australian Institute of Health Innovation, Macquarie University) who will set the scene on ‘evidence’ in the pursuit of safe, person-centred care and advancements and implementation in digital health.

Other speakers will appear as panellists and include healthcare consumers and experts in digital and health literacy. These speakers will address a range of questions and relate these to a “patient story” developed in research consultation with people with little or no speech who want to use My Health Record to help convey their information to multiple providers.

The interactive symposium will cover topics relating to some of the difficulties and opportunities facing digital health consumers as they begin to engage with My Health Record with their service providers.

Talks with the audience will consider gaps and areas for growth in public-facing information about My Health Record, and ways that both health and disability organisations can begin to engage with this digital innovation in safe and inclusive ways.

The impact of My Health Record on healthcare safety and decision-making will be the focus of discussion with the audience. We aim to draw upon discussions in this symposium to develop an ‘evidence brief' that the Digital Health Agency can make use of in its development and implementation of My Health Record.
