My Health info thanks

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Dear Edi­tor, Tocumwal Lo­cal Health Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tee would like to thank the SRN for pro­mot­ing our My Health Record in­for­ma­tion ses­sions, to be held Au­gust 27 and 28 (‘Lo­cal Ses­sions on My Health Record’, Au­gust 15).

We thought it was im­por­tant to ad­vise read­ers that since pub­li­ca­tion of our ar­ti­cle the gov­ern­ment has made three changes to the opt in, opt out and other con­di­tions.

The opt out pe­riod has been ex­tended from Oc­to­ber to Novem­ber 15, 2018.

A court or­der will now be re­quired to ac­cess your record (not just a Sys­tem Op­er­a­tor).

Your record will be per­ma­nently deleted when you can­cel it (not archived for 30 years after death).

These are sig­nif­i­cant changes and we ap­pre­ci­ate the op­por­tu­nity to up­date read­ers.

Yours etc. Anne Pyle Tocumwal Op­ti­mists and LHAC
