Digital health toolkit
In February 2021, the Australian Digital Health Agency launched the Digital Health Specialist Toolkit. The Toolkit is aimed at providing resources to support the adoption of digital tools in private practice for specialist practitioners.
The Toolkit provides practitioners with CPD modules on digital health, printable guides, and informative videos, among other resources.
Webinars and training
The Australian Digital Health Agency are currently delivering a series of seminars for specialist practitioners, including detailed training on using My Health Record.
My Health Record
My Health Record is a secure online summary of a patient’s health information and is available to all Australians. Healthcare providers authorised by their healthcare organisation can access My Health Record to view and add patient health information.

RACS and digital health
RACS will be working with the Australian Digital Health Agency over the coming months to develop and improve digital health resources for Fellows. We invite Fellows to provide their thoughts on their use of digital health tools, in particular My Health Record, and feedback on any of the Digital Health Agency resources. We will also be conducting a series of interviews with Fellows to gain an in depth understanding of Fellows’ digital health needs.
If you’d be interested in conducting an interview or providing feedback, please email Molly Mckew at firstname.lastname@example.org.
