When your organisation applies to the System Operator to register your organisation as a registered portal operator as a participant in the My Health Record system, personal information in this form will be collected by us as the System Operator of the My Health Record system. The purpose of collecting this personal information is (1) to verify your identity, the identity of your organisation and the role of each person nominated by your organisation to be appointed as your portal operator officer in the organisation, (2) to manage the My Health Record system; and (3) for the purposes of the My Health Records Act and the My Health Records Rule (Cth). Without this information your organisation cannot be registered as a portal operator in the My Health Record system.
Where you provide the personal information of another individual to appoint them as a portal operator officer, you confirm that the individual has agreed to provide their personal information to us for the purposes set out above.
If you apply for access to the My Health Record Test Environment, we (the System Operator of the My Health Record system) will collect personal information about you as the authorised person to apply for access, personal information of the people you describe in this form as the “Business Contact” and the “Technical/Testing Contact”, and your organisation’s name, which may contain personal information such as an individual’s personal name.
We will collect and use this personal information for the purposes of granting your organisation access to the Test Environment and contacting the relevant person for general enquiries about your organisation, app or application, for technical and testing purposes, and for administrative purposes.
Without this information your organisation and app will not be able to access the My Health Record Test Environment. A copy of your application, including any documents provided as evidence of identity, is kept by us for record keeping purposes. We will only disclose personal information about you or others you have included in this form to our contractors and delegates to assist us in operating the My Health Record system. Contractors and delegates are bound by strict obligations to treat individuals’ personal information with the same level of respect, privacy and security as we do. We will not disclose personal information included in this form overseas.
