My Health Record

My Health Record is going Opt-Out

My Health Record is a national platform for the sharing of patient health information that can be accessed anywhere and at anytime. By the end of 2018 every Australian will have a My Health Record, unless they actively choose not to have one.

Having a My Health Record means your important health information like allergies, current conditions and treatments, medicine details, pathology reports or diagnostic imaging scan reports can be digitally stored in one place. Healthcare providers like doctors, specialists and hospital staff can see these details online from anywhere at any time when they need to, such as in an accident or emergency.

Use of My Health Record will be an integral part of the emerging digital health framework in Australia. 

Providers can view and contribute information to patient records using a compliant software package or clinical information system, or obtain view-only access via the Provider Portal.
