RACGP submission to Modernising My Health Record discussion paper

Date: 31 October 2023

The RACGP has provided a submission to the Department of Health and Aged Care’s discussion papers on ‘Modernising My Health Record – Sharing Pathology and diagnostic imaging reports by default and removing consumer access delays.’

The consultation papers called for advice from stakeholders to help shape how the government may implement these changes
