The My Health Record has been in operation for over six years and already has over six million Australians with a health record. The My Health Record system and its expansion is widely supported by Australia's leading clinical and consumer peak organisations as well as state and territory governments. The government sees this reference as an opportunity to outline the benefits of the My Health Record for individuals, health professionals and the health system as a whole. This reference will also provide an opportunity to address any concerns or misconceptions about the My Health Record. As such, the government supports this motion.
