Upload Consent

My Health Record and National Prescription and Dispense Repository (NPDR) are opt-out systems. However, patient upload consent may still be required before a document can be uploaded to a patient's My Health Record.

By default, the My Health Record upload consent status for each patient is set to not asked, that is, neither Yes nor No. However, a background process is run nightly that checks if a patient has an active My Health Record accessible to the organisation and if their status is not asked sets that patient's upload consent status to Yes. See CCareQueue_Pcehr in Background Processes for more information.

When an upload to My Health Record is attempted, Communicare checks if patient consent has been obtained. If consent has not been obtained, a window is displayed requesting patient consent before the upload can continue. If the patient grants consent, enter your Communicare login password and then the upload can occur.
