The concept of the My Health Record is a wonderful thing – a national, centralised, standardised, secure, summary medical record accessible by any treating clinician and the patients themselves. The original version, the Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record, was born in 2012, set up by the Commonwealth Government and overseen by the then National Electronic Health Transition Authority. As at 7 May 2017, 4,803,022 or around 20% of Australians had a My Health Record (Australian Digital Health Agency [ADHA], 2017). However, there remains a low public awareness of the My Health Record. How do we turn the concept into reality?
