AMA Submission on the secondary use of My Health Record data
The AMA submission urges the government to adopt a carefully balanced position on the secondary use of My Health Record data. Our members recognize the positive opportunities the new My Health Record data set will create. But the extent and management of each disclosure decision must not breach the trust of patients who expect the government to keep their health data safe and protect it against any privacy breach. Doctors are also mission critical to the success of the My Health Record. The secondary use of My Health Record data must not breach their trust either.
