The Australian Digital Health Agency welcomes the announcement today from the WA Health Minister, the Hon. Roger Cook MLA, that My Health Record system is playing a critical part in empowering patients to manage and view their personal health information through the connection of PathWest.
“PathWest plays an important role for patients and is a critical part of healthcare in WA. This development provides patients and consumers who choose to use PathWest with an enhanced service” said Minister Cook.
Tim Kelsey, ADHA CEO says “Patients in WA now have the option of choosing a pathology provider that will securely upload their results to their My Health Record. We have heard from patients that control over their own test results is incredibly empowering and helps people to have more-informed discussions with their healthcare providers about their health."
