The review of the Personally Controlled Electronic Health Records (PCEHR) system has been completed.

Health Minister Peter Dutton today received the report from the review team headed by the Executive Director of the UnitingCare Health Group, Mr Richard Royle.

The review looked into significant concerns about the progress and implementation of the PCEHR.

Mr Royle was assisted by AMA President Dr Steve Hambleton and Australia Post CIO Andrew Walduck.

Their report provides a comprehensive plan for the future of electronic health records in Australia.

Mr Dutton said the Government would now take time to consider the review recommendations and would respond in due course.

“I sincerely thank the members of the review panel for their work on this matter.”
