Thats nice...... but did you know that when you "opt-out" all your medical records are STILL put into the "cloud" along with everyone else's and they are simply marked as "inaccessible". Your records can NOT be removed or deleted.

Better yet, I opted out with medtech, but that information was never sent to my GP, and it was not easy for him to find where to opt me out.

The cloud goal also keep changing, so what you believed was happening with your information can change at any stage on the whim of the ministry of health, they have no obligation to inform you of these changes, it is up to you to ask your GP (who is also not guaranteed to be informed).

Were you told that you had to opt-out, the default is that everyone who is enrolled with a medical practice is opted in. In some cases you may also find that if you opt-out you may loose all your health subsidies.




I attended the presentation/push for the proposed electronic records system  last year.

I expressed my cynicism at the time about their faith in system security having seen it at work in in hospitals. Didn't stop Jessie Ridders radiology records being accessed. Sure they knew who it was because they used their own login details which was stupid.

Questions about security of information being stored overseas was met with rolled eyes.

Yes, I know you had to opt out. I was at the presentation.

My eyes rolled at the " limiited access " to these records to trusted people... So doctors, nurses, district nurses practice nurses, pharmacist, physiotherapy, midwife, occupational therapists, SLT ...all those passwords, all those pc's being left on...

Well in the Manawatu you missed Pharmacists .

Most people when they signed up (i.e. enrolled in a practice) believe that the sharing of information was with other medical professionals within the same practice, or when requests were made to specialists. I doubt they believed it was wholesale sharing.

NZ is so trusting - you can enrol your dog to vote and show up and vote as your dog and no one will know unless your neighbour blows the whistle. really.

Meh, I don't think my dog voting will matter given that he always ends up voting for the Greens anyway.

Beccara: I dont blame them given how bad HealthLink are to deal with


Healthlink doesn't operate Connected Health.  The Ministry of Health does, and Healthlink is only one of several certified connectivity providers.  In fact, you have connect into Connected Health on Snap, even!

Two factor auth should really be compulsory for information this sensitive. That way if a password is guessed no problem.

Its interesting how reluctant providers are to implement two factor auth for their systems of this nature, to me it seems like one of the easiest and cheapest solutions!

Probably for the usual reason.    

Cost.

Need extra hardware at every pc.

Some UK hospitals were rolling out separate computer ID cardsID in 2010

That may be the case but HealthLink is is used very, very widely on connections below hospital size, I've only come across a handful of different vendor sites and thousands of healthlink sites




Most problems are the result of previous solutions...
