We encourage all our patients to register for My Health Record so their doctor can upload their health information to make it accessible for other healthcare providers. We have brochures at the clinic or ask our reception team to help you register or answer any questions you may have.
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.
Your doctor and other healthcare providers connected to the system and involved in your healthcare will see your My Health Record unless you have set access controls. You can limit who can see your My Health Record or grant restricted access to doctors, specialists or hospitals.
Your My Health Record contains information:
Medicines you are taking prescribed by your doctor
Your Medicare claims history
Any allergies and adverse reactions you may have
Past medical history
Current medical conditions
Your advance care planning information (this records your wishes about your health care in the event that you are too unwell to communicate
