Labor will push for further changes to the federal government’s controversial online medical records system, in hopes of guaranteeing private health insurers can never get their hands on its data.

Opposition health spokeswoman Catherine King says Labor will also seek changes to the My Health Record system to better protect the privacy of employees and women fleeing domestic violence.

The push will come in the form of proposed amendments to laws already proposed by the federal government to boost privacy, by ensuring police and government agencies will need a court order to obtain patient data.
