Abstract

Australia will implement a personally controlled electronic health record (PCEHR) over the next three to five years. Development of an e-health policy framework to support this initiative has involved healthcare providers and patients, but the discussion appears to have bypassed non-patient citizens. There is a risk that this omission may result in difficulties with implementation and uptake of the new system.
