Consultation has started on the ‘My Health Record Guidelines for Pharmacists’ developed by the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA).
The guidelines give direction to pharmacists on clinical use of the My Health Record system. By the end of 2018, all Australians will have a My Health Record, unless they choose to opt out.
Pharmacists have a responsibility to review their practice and, where necessary, build on their digital health competency to ensure they’re ready to integrate the My Health Record system into patient care.
During the public consultation, the PSA wants comments from interested individuals and organisations: members of the pharmacy profession, consumers, other health professional groups and practitioners, educators, researchers and government bodies.
The consultation paper can be accessed at: www.psa.org.au/media-releases/consultation-begins-on-my-health-record-guidelines
The consultation paper will first be reviewed, then feedback will be gathered through the consultation survey, which is open until Tuesday, February 20, 2018. Any queries about this consultation can be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
