My Health Record 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. For more information, see CCareQueue_Pcehr in Background Processes.

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.
