Framework to guide the secondary use of My Health Record system data

The Framework to guide the secondary use of My Health Record system data (the Framework) has been developed.

Page last updated: 17 May 2018

The Framework outlines key principles that will be used to establish the governance mechanisms and implement transparent processes that are needed to guide decisions about releasing data to suitable applicants for secondary use purposes.

On the 11th May 2018 the Minister, The Hon Greg Hunt MP Minister for Health announced the release of the Framework.

The development of the Framework was informed by a national public consultation process. A Community Consultation Summary Report was developed to reflect the findings of that process.

An Implementation Plan will be developed during the second half of 2018 by the Department of Health, the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare and the Australian Digital Health Agency in collaboration with key stakeholders and project partners. The Implementation Plan will be published here once it has been completed.
