This guide explains how a requesting clinician can communicate to a pathology or diagnostic imaging provider that they should not upload a report to the patient’s My Health Record.
The intended audience includes developers and vendors of digital health systems that generate pathology and/or diagnostic imaging requests.
Pathology and diagnostic imaging providers are now uploading reports to the My Health Record system. This has necessitated discussion about the process of communicating to the diagnostic services providers (laboratory and diagnostic imaging practices) when reports should not be uploaded to a patients’ My Health Record.
A consultation process with the pathology and diagnostic imaging sectors confirmed that the model for incorporating pathology and diagnostic imaging reports into the My Health Record system would be consistent where appropriate.
