Concept of Operations: Relating to the introduction of a Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record System
4.3.10 Consumer-entered notesThe PCEHR System will provide an avenue for individuals to record notes within the PCEHR via the consumer portal. These notes are provided as a memory aid for individuals and their representatives and are not visible to healthcare providers.
The consumer-entered notes is the first step towards a strengthening involvement of individuals in their healthcare. The PCEHR System also allows for independently operated conformant portals to connect to the PCEHR System (see Section 3.4.3). It is envisaged that these portals will in time offer value added features around self-managed care. For example, this may include collecting information such as blood glucose levels and a food diary to help an individual work with their diabetes educator to manage their diabetes.

The Medibank Private Portal will allow individuals enrolled in the Medibank Private chronic disease management program to collect and share information with their healthcare providers. Medibank Private will not be using any of this information for the management of claims or eligibility for healthcare insurance benefits.|
