MY HEALTH RECORD
■ Your health record can contain a summary of information such as your medications, medical conditions, immunisations, pathology and medical imaging results, as well as a summary of your hospital, specialist, GP and allied health visits.
■ Your information is available in one place and easily accessible by your doctors, specialists or hospitals.
■ Because healthcare providers have better access to clinical information, they have a more detailed picture to make decisions, diagnose and provide treatment.
■ In emergency situations, treating doctors will be able to use My Health Record to provide treatment quickly.
■ Your health information can be viewed securely online, from anywhere, at any time – even if you move or travel interstate. ■ You can manage privacy and control access to your record, including what gets uploaded and who has access.
■ My Health Record has multi-layered and strong safeguards in place to protect your information.
