My Health Record

On this week on Women on the Line we take a closer look at the recent changes to the Australian Government's My Health Record system. Earlier this year the Government announced that the system would be changed from an opt-in to opt-out system. What are the implications of these changes? We chat with Katina Michael ,who is a Professor in the School of Computing and Information Technology at the University of Wollongong, about data and privacy issues with the My Health Record system. Later in the show we hear from Jules Kim, CEO of Scarlett Alliance, chat to us about how the system will impact sex workers.
