Australian Digital Health Agency Project

The National Allergy Strategy is working with the Australian Digital Health Agency to improve the quality of patient allergy information in My Health Record.

There are a number of activities that will be undertaken during 2019-20 to improve allergy information in My Health Record and encourage allergy health professionals to utilise My Health Record more frequently. We will also be engaging with consumers to provide education about the importance of allowing all health professionals to access their allergy information as well as the importance of the accuracy of their allergy information if adding this information themselves.

This project aims to:

  • Help standardise the allergy information in My Health Record
  • Help make allergy information more accessible within My Health Record
  • Encourage more health professionals working in allergy to access and upload patient information in My Health Record more frequently
  • Educate consumers about allergy information in My Health Record

National Allergy Strategy Rationale

Allergic diseases have become an increasingly important chronic disease and public health issue in Australia and other developed countries over the last two decades, contributing to increased demand for medical services, significant economic cost of care and reduced quality of life of people with allergic diseases and their carers.
