Presentation by Australian Digital Health Agency CEO Tim Kelsey at the National Press Club, Canberra, Thursday 24 May.
The Australian Digital Health Agency (the Agency) is working with a wide range of partner organisations to inform the Australian public about My Health Record, its security controls, benefits and their rights to opt out.
My Health Record already provides significant benefits for the more than 5.7 million Australians with a record, including fewer adverse drug events, avoided hospital admissions, reduced duplication of diagnostic tests, better coordination of care for people seeing multiple healthcare providers, and better informed treatment decisions.
On Thursday 24 May, at 12.30pm Agency CEO Tim Kelsey will address a National Press Club lunch in Canberra about these and other evolutionary developments in digital health in Australia.
The speech was live streamed and is now available to watch online on ABC iView.
