Under the My Health Records Act 2012 (the Act), health information in a My Health Record may be collected, used and disclosed “for any purpose” with the consent of the healthcare recipient. One of the functions of the System Operator is “to prepare and provide de-identified data for research and public health purposes.” 

Before these provisions of the Act will be implemented, a framework for secondary use of My Health Record systems data must be established. 

HealthConsult’s role is to develop a draft Framework and associated draft Implementation Plan that will facilitate the secondary uses of My Health Record systems data.
