Seniors Learn About My Health Record


At EuroSCUG’s last meeting, Darren Marcus, Digital Health Officer at COORDINAIRE South Eastern NSW Primary Health Network, gave a talk on My Health Record. This is an on-line summary of each person’s key health information, bringing together medical conditions, allergies, medications, healthcare providers, and test results, all in one place

Darren showed members a short video which illustrated the advantages of setting up a My Health Record. It is a national system, private and secure, accessible at all times, and can be personally controlled. The owner can be alerted whenever the record is accessed, and can also opt out of joining the system, or cancel the record at any time.

Darren answered many questions from members, mostly centred around security. There are multi-layered and strong safeguards in place to protect the information including encryption, firewalls, secure login, authentication mechanisms, and audit logging. Strict rules and regulations apply as to who can access the records.

After morning tea, members joined small groups to hear about ways to explore genealogy, install a solid state drive into a laptop, or design a Christmas letter, while others accessed the Beginners Group or Help Desk.

The last EuroSCUG meeting of the year will be the Christmas Party, after which members will take a break until February.

EuroSCUG is a group of seniors sharing computer experiences and friendship. Members meet at 10am on the first Wednesday of the month at Moruya Golf Club, and local area groups meet regularly in towns along the Eurobodalla. Monthly tablet groups (iPad and Android) are also held.

To ease the burden on the small group of volunteer presenters, and allow them to take well earned breaks, the group is always looking for more volunteers to share their computer expertise.
