This online training supports self-paced learning. It will allow healthcare providers to become familiar with, and confident in using, today’s My Health Record system. The first time you access this online training you will need to register.
The online training is a combination of existing and new material and will continue to be updated, incorporating feedback from users as the My Health Record system continues to evolve.
The training includes simulations on how to view and upload information to the My Health Record system using some common clinical information systems, as well as the My Health Record Provider Portal.
The first module of the training introduces healthcare providers to the key principles of the My Health Record system, and familiarises them with its features and functions. Examples of the topics covered in the training are:
- The types of clinical documents held in an individual’s My Health Record;
- Consent and how it relates to viewing and uploading of clinical information;
- Accessing an individual’s My Health Record in the event of an emergency; and
- Ensuring quality data is uploaded to My Health Record.
There are additional modules available which are tailored for healthcare providers in General Practice, Community Pharmacy, Hospitals, Specialist Practice, Allied Health and Residential Aged Care.
This resource will be particularly useful for general practices participating in the Practice Incentives Program eHealth Incentive, which from May 2016 will include a requirement for general practices to upload shared health summaries to the My Health Record.
Healthcare professionals can now simulate use of the digital health functionality in their software. Each software product below has been made available with the kind assistance of software vendors, who each provide their own training in this functionality – for further information on this, please contact your vendor.
The first password is “TrainMe” and the clinical software login is “P@ssw0rd” (a zero not the letter O).
Training resources have been developed by the Australian Digital Health Agency.
