Govt to increase penalties for improper use of My Health Record

The federal government will accept most of the amendments put forward by Labor to strengthen the My Health Record Act, including increasing penalties for improper use and tightening up the ability for estranged parents to access their child's record to safeguard against domestic violence.

The government has also agreed to conduct a review into the situation for mature minors and parental access to a teenager's record, something the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners has been requesting for over six years.
