Digital health is a clinical, social and above all human imperative: it empowers high quality health and care for all. Digital technologies can empower people to take more control of their health and wellbeing, support social inclusion and equity of access to health care, as well as the quality and financial sustainability of improved health outcomes in the Australian community. The Australian Digital Health Agency leads the implementation of Australia’s National Digital Health Strategy and is the system operator for My Health Record. My Health Record is a fundamental feature of Australia’s health infrastructure: 90% of the population have a record; a total of 1.5 billion documents are in the system, with 523 million of those uploaded since 22 February 2019.
