Today we’re going to talk about how NOT to have a MyHealthRecord. Perhaps you don’t think it’s private, perhaps you’re opposed to it for some reason. Perhaps you just don’t want one. Read on.



The Australian Government is expanding My Health Record for all Australians in 2018.



By the end of 2018, a My Health Record will be created for every Australian unless they choose not to have one.



How can I opt out?


If you decide that you don’t want a My Health Record created on your behalf, you will have the opportunity to tell us during a three-month period.


This period will run from 16 July to 15 October 2018. It’s not possible to opt out of having a My Health Record before this period starts on 16 July 2018.
