COVID-19 Results to be available earlier in My Health Record

17 Dec 2020

AMA members are advised that a change will be made in the My Health Record system so that COVID-19 pathology reports are available to consumers in their My Health Record sooner. From 21 December 2020, COVID-19 pathology reports will be available after 24 hours to consumers who have a My Health Record.  

All other pathology reports uploaded to My Health Record will continue to be available after seven days, giving clinicians time to check the report first and contact their patient about the results, if needed. A review of the change will be conducted after 3 months.
