My Health Record

An initiative of the federal government, My Health Record is a secure online summary of an individual’s health information and is available to all Australians. Health care professionals authorised by their health care organisation can access My Health Record to view and add patient health information.

Updated Health Records

Through the My Health Record system, authorised health care professionals can access timely information about their patients such as shared health summaries, discharge summaries, prescription and dispense records, pathology reports and diagnostic imaging reports. This allows health care professionals to have the most up-to-date information on their patients which is important, especially in an emergency situation.

As a patient, community members can control what goes into their My Health Record and who is allowed to access this information. Individuals can choose to share their health information with their doctors, hospitals and other health care professionals.
