Alliance Friends provide views on My Health Record

Gabrielle O'Kane

The Alliance has taken a ‘pulse’ survey of people passionate about rural health to collate their views on the Australian Government’s My Health Record.

The majority of responders among the Alliance Friends group said they were aware of the digital service and many highlighted benefits of the platform, such as helping to overcome the barriers of distance.

CEO Gabrielle O’Kane presented the findings of the survey to the My Health Record Symposium: Progress and Possibilities online event on 17 June 2021. Friends reported benefits such as having access to up-to-date information and health data in an emergency; enabling easy access when travelling; and allowing the sharing of information between rural and remote health professionals.
