Capital Health Network, through the PHN program and in partnership with the Australian Digital Health Agency, invites all health professionals, in particular medical specialists, general practitioners and pharmacists to our upcoming event at one of Canberra’s most prestigious locations.
The event will provide networking opportunities and comprehensive information on how My Health Record will increase your productivity and benefit your practice. A panel discussion will provide a unique opportunity to hear stories of success and growth from both clinicians and consumers. The panel will include a cross-section of health professionals and we encourage you to raise any questions you would like answered.
Why is it important?
Timely and available health information is a fundamental building block for coordination of comprehensive patient focused care. The Capital Health Network Needs Assessment identified that;
- The timely communication of health information between members of the care team is an essential component of any transfer to ensure patient safety.
- Poor communication between different parts of the health system often results in delays in appropriate treatment or community supports, duplication of diagnostic tests and in some cases avoidable hospital admissions.
My Health Record is the first step to closing this gap and building a better integrated health system in the ACT and across Australia.
