Response: Department of Health’s proposed amendments to the PCEHR (assisted registration) rules


Summary

Date: 22 July 2015

The Assisted Registration Rules for the PCEHR require that an organisation providing assisted registration must record the consumer’s consent in writing and either retain that consent for three years or send it to the System Operator to retain for three years.

The Department of Health proposes to remove the requirement to retain forms and replace it with a simple requirement to obtain the consumer’s consent.

The RACGP acknowledges that changes to the current PCEHR assisted registration process will ease the administration burden on general practice with regards to the management and storage of paperwork.
