All are welcome to register for free for this public information event about the Australian ‘Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record’ and its use by people with communication disabilities – particularly older children and young adults who are in transition from child to adult health services, and other vulnerable populations.
Register by 21st November for catering to be arranged – morning tea!
The Personally Controlled Electronic Health Records (PCEHR) is an online secure system designed for people to share their health summary information across health service providers.
The PCEHR – potentially to be named ‘MyHealth Record’ in the future – was introduced in Australia in 2012. Since then, although many people have registered to use the PCEHR, few are yet using it effectively to share information across service providers, for positive benefits to healthcare outcomes. In this workshop we will provide detailed information on the PCEHR, provide results of our recent research into use of the PCEHR in the Hunter Region, and outline how PCEHR might be used by young people with disability moving from child to adult health services.
