10 things pharmacists need to know about using My Health Record
The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia has launched guidelines to help pharmacists use My Health Record appropriately.
Advice in the guidelines, launched on World Pharmacists Day, includes these 10 points:
- Pharmacists must be trained before they access the My Health Record system. Training should cover patient privacy, how to adjust dispense record uploads if a patient withdraws consent and what to do if there is a data breach.
- Always check that the correct patient is selected in the dispensing software before uploading records.
