My Health Record
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.

Benefits of having a My Health Record
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.
