2:00 PM CASE STUDY: Exploring the Cyber Security Systems in Place to Protect Patient Information on My Health Record
Australia has been ranked second in the world for delivery of online services in this year’s UN E-Government Survey, just behind global leader Denmark. The online service ‘My Health Record’ provides a secure online summary of an individual’s health information which can be viewed securely online by doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers – even interstate. The Australian Digital Health Agency confirms that “it is secured with a comprehensive set of people, process, and technology controls to protect health records from a cyber-attack. The system has robust security controls to ensure the information is stored and accessed by only trusted connected health systems”.
