My Health Record


Latest news:
Police will not be able to access a patientís My Health Record data without a court order


My Health Record is a secure online summary of your health information. You can control what goes into it, and who is allowed to access it. You can choose to share your health information with your doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers.

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.

Who gets a record?

After 31 January 2019 every individual with a Medicare or Department of Veterans' Affairs card will get a My Health Record.

The opt-out period has ended on 31 January 2019


If you wish to delete your record permanently please contact:What you need to know - from sbs.com.au

Benefits of having a My Health Record

  1. Better Access:
    Your important healthcare information will be available in one place online that is easily accessible by your authorised doctors, specialists, or hospitals.
    Even if you move or travel interstate, the information can be viewed securely online, anywhere, any time. If you want, you can access your health information from any computer with an internet connection. You control who can see it. Once itís set up you donít need to do anything.

  2. Improved Safety:
    In a medical emergency, healthcare providers connected to the My Health Record system can see your health information to provide you the best possible care quickly. If you want, you can list any allergies, adverse reactions and medical conditions you may have to help healthcare providers give you better advice and treatment.

  3. More Convenient:
    You wonít need to worry about having to remember and repeat your health history like medicines, details of chronic conditions, and dates of recent tests with different or new healthcare providers. The same goes for your childrenís health history like immunisations and medical tests.

  4. Strong Security:
    If you choose to you can control who sees what information in your My Health Record. There are strict rules and regulations on who can see or use your My Health Record to protect your health information from misuse or loss. There are penalties for anyone who breaks these.

  5. Privacy Matters:
    We respect your privacy. To create a My Health Record, we will collect information about you and your children from Medicare and some other government bodies including your name, date of birth, and Medicare records from the last two years. Registered healthcare provider organisations such as general practices and hospitals will be able to access your My Health Record when providing healthcare to you.

Please ask our doctors to assist you with uploading your clinical details to My Health Record.

What will My Health Record mean for your health care practitioners?

As more people use My Health Record and information in the system grows, it will help support clinical decision-making, decrease search time for relevant information and improve continuity of care.

Clinical leadership is essential in the transformation of healthcare. Australia has a momentous opportunity to create the digital health infrastructure that will produce benefits long into the future.
