General practice has a fundamental role in ensuring the privacy of patient health information. It is important general practices understand the current legislative framework for the management of health information at both a practice level and when sharing information using systems such as My Health Record.

These webinars are designed to support GPs and practice teams with understanding their privacy obligations and to provide guidance on how to protect patient information.

These webinars are delivered with support from the Australian Digital Health Agency.

Telehealth is becoming more popular as a mode of healthcare delivery due to the benefits it provides to both patients and practitioners, particularly those in rural and remote areas, and has the potential to provide patients with more convenient and efficient access to healthcare.

These webinars will outline the clinical, administrative and technical considerations for this mode of healthcare delivery, to support GPs and other eligible practitioners in providing safe and effective video consultations.

Whilst Telehealth is broad, these webinars will focus on video consultations covered under the MBS where a GP is physically present with the patient to provide patient-end services during a consultation with a specialist at another location.

In health care, the primary source of data is through clinical care delivery to patients. When this data is used outside of the general practice setting, for purposes other than which it was originally collected, it is referred to as 'secondary use of data'. Secondary use of data includes activities such as research, quality and safety measurement, provider certification or accreditation and marketing.

Data has become a highly valued commodity and practices need to think carefully about the worth of their data and the intended purpose of the secondary use

These webinars are designed to provide decision-making support to assist GPs and practice teams in deciding whether it is appropriate to release de-identified healthcare data at the request of an external organisation.
