The NESAF has also been updated to reflect changes to: • Processes relating to online registration for the My Health Record system; • The use of NASH certificates; and • Australian privacy legislation.
Clarification: PCEHR means the My Health Record, formerly the "Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record", within the meaning of the My Health Records Act 2012 (Cth), formerly called the Personally Controlled Electronic Health Records Act 2012 (Cth).
