In October, we met with key people from the Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA), who manage My Health Record and many other digital health projects. We also met with key people from the Australian Commission for Safety and Quality in Health Care (ACSQHC), who are responsible for setting the standards for hospital accreditation.

The meeting was pivotal is assisting us to understand how My Health Record currently works and the Australian Digital Health Agency has agreed to prioritise working with the National Allergy Strategy on the allergy component of My Health Record.

There is still further consultation underway to engage with the states and territories to discuss current drug allergy management and e-health across Australia.
