MB BS, FRACGP, FAMA
Dr Chris Moy is a full-time general practitioner working at large group practice in Parkside. He graduated from the University of Adelaide in 1991 and he has worked in general practice for over 20 years. His interests include aged care, palliative care and health communication systems.
Chris has served on several aged and palliative care related committees in South Australia including the CNAHS Falls Prevention Steering Committee, the Expert Advisory Panel of the SA Advance Directives Review, the SA Health End of Life Decision Making Project Working Group and the SA Health Resuscitation Planning Advisory Group. He is the current Chair of both the Adelaide PHN Central Adelaide Clinical Council and GP Palliative Shared Care Program Operations Consultative Committee, and he also remains a member of the SA Health End of Life Prescribing Working Group.
On a national level, he represented the AMA on the Telehealth Advisory Group which oversaw the initial implementation of Medicare funded telehealth across Australia. In 2012 he was appointed to the Independent Advisory Committee of the national Patient Controlled Electronic Health Record (PCEHR) where he developed an understanding of the serious usability problems that had arisen in the PCEHR. This led to membership of the National E-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA) Clinical Usability Program Steering Group which was instrumental in contributing to the repair of the PCEHR, now known as the My Health Record, and later, appointment to the My Health Record Operations Management Committee.
He is currently a Patient Digital Safety Adviser for the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care, and a member of the Privacy and Security Advisory Committee of the newly formed Australian Digital Health Agency.
As well as his involvement on AMA(SA) Council and Board, Chris is a member of the AMA's Federal Council- serving on both the Federal AMA Medical Practice Committee and Ethics and Medico-legal Committee since 2014, and chairing the latter since 2016.
Chris was inducted into the AMA Roll of Fellows in 2015.
His wife, Monika, also works in general practice, and they have two teenage children. Away from work, Chris enjoys Crows-specific AFL and, more tellingly for his generation, Xbox games.
