Consumer-centred digital health on the horizon

The Australian Digital Health Agency and Consumers Health Forum of Australia have signed a memorandum of understanding to ensure that digital health solutions are consumer centred.

It is hoped that the ongoing development of My Health Record will enable improved safety and quality of patient care.

“Our unique partnership with the Australian Digital Health Agency will ensure health consumers have a real voice in developing Australia’s digital health capability,” said CHF CEO Leanne Wells.

“Importantly, the MoU supports the national effort to promote increased use of the My Health Record system by consumers and carers.”

Agency CEO Tim Kelsey said the agency’s ongoing commitment to consumer and community partnerships is critical to helping improve health outcomes for all Australians.

“With the support of CHF and our other stakeholders, My Health Record will significantly transform the health system. It will improve efficiency, quality and delivery of health care,” Kelsey said.
