The government may seek savings in the cost of operating My Health Record by shifting to cloud infrastructure.
The budget sets aside $374.2 million over two years, beginning in 2017-18, for the expansion of the national e-health record system as it moves to an opt-out participation model.
The national e-health record system looks set to shift to an opt-out model, after an evaluation of trials in Queensland and New South Wales concluded an “opt-out approach to increase both individual and healthcare provider participation and use is the preferred option,” with opt-in approaches “unsustainable”.
The head of NSW’s digital health agency says there is “no plan B” when it comes to widespread adoption of My Health Record.
