Clayton Utz advised the Federal Government on the launch of the first stage of its national electronic health records network, HealthConnect.

HealthConnect is a shared electronic record system aimed at improving the quality and safety of health care delivery by facilitating a better flow of information on the health of Australian residents.

Clayton Utz was engaged by the Department of Health and Ageing (DOHA) last April to undertake a systematic review of the raft of legal issues associated with the HealthConnect project. The review led to the HealthConnect Legal Issues Report, which addresses governance, IT, IP, consent, information privacy, security, access control, data quality and ownership, stakeholder liability and indemnity and stakeholder rights and responsibilities.

Clayton Utz partners Mark Sneddon and John Carroll led the team, which included Richard Morrison, Gretchen Bennett, Greg Williams and Jamie Doran.

Sneddon said production of the report “required not only a detailed scoping of the legal issues and risks that were roadblocks to participation for many stakeholders — including health professionals and consumers of health services — but also required the legal team to suggest workable strategies for managing these legal issues and risks”.

“Now scoped, the issues look more manageable and will enable stakeholder re-engagement and participation on implementation of HealthConnect.”
