At the current stage of progress in digital health, My Health Record is a key feature. Annette Ford will share her experiences and reflections about My Health Record in OT practice at this early stage and discuss likely trends in digital health in the next couple of years and their implications for OTs.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES                                                                                         

Participants will gain an understanding of:

  • The emergence of digital health in Australia
  • The purpose of My health Record and the types of documents it contains
  • How the use of MyHR can improve client outcomes and the work of OTs
  • Future trends in digital health
  • How OTs can prepare to engage with developments in digital health

How will this webinar enable participants to work occupationally with clients/patients?

This webinar will outline the role of information contained in the My Health Record in guiding OT assessment of functional activity and in avoiding interventions that may be contraindicated for our clients. Pragmatic considerations for using MHR in clinical practice and benefits in both work flow and clinical outcomes will also be discussed.


This webinar is suitable for:

  •  Student  
  • New Graduate
  • Beginner
  • Experienced


Annette Ford acquired a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy Degree at the University of Queensland in 1982. She has practised in a variety of OT positions in hospital and community settings in Australia and the UK, including physical, psychiatric and paediatric disciplines. Since 2006, Annette has been in sole private practice in Brisbane. In this role she currently does community consultations with seniors and veterans who have complex co-morbidities. In 2011, Annette completed a level 1 course in Lymphoedema Management which has led to a large proportion of her caseload being those with chronic oedemas.

In the last decade, Annette has pursued an intense interest in the implications of digital health for OT practice, without external funding until 2018. Her interest has led to her developing functional practice software using Microsoft Word and publicly available applications, forming an interest group “IT Challenges for OTs” and engaging in roles as Allied Health Digital Champion with the Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA) and the Brisbane South Primary Health Network (BSPHN).
