Council understands that recent media reports have created concerns amongst the community in relation to the management of patient medical records within the municipal area and specifically at Bicheno and Triabunna, where Council provides medical administration services under the umbrella of East Coast Health. Council, as the medical administrator of East Coast Health, has provided the server and software to the Triabunna and Bicheno medical practices on which patient medical records are stored. Council staff do not, and have never, had access to patient records.  At all times patient confidentiality and privacy of records has been upheld.  Patient records are accessed according to policies and procedures that comply with privacy laws and medical codes of conduct.Council would welcome any investigation by the Tasmanian Ombudsman and Health Complaints Commissioner with full confidence that no misconduct has taken place.
