The AIHW is proud to have been selected to manage and release My Health Record data for secondary purposes. The announcement reinforces our position as trusted, experienced managers of and leaders in data.
Using My Health Record for secondary purposes will open a range of possibilities to fill data gaps by allowing the health sector to better understand how Australia’s health system is used—as well as gaining valuable insights into the health outcomes for patients.
It is a significant new role for the AIHW, and we look forward to working closely with the Department of Health, the Australian Digital Health Agency and other stakeholders to build the evidence base and contribute to better health and wellbeing for all Australians, while upholding the strictest data quality and privacy standards.
