My Health Record: Your Health In Your Hands

By the end of 2018,  My Health Record will be created for every Australian, unless you choose to opt out by the 31st of January, 2018.

Some key things to remember about My Health Record:

  • Your important healthcare information is available online, and easily accessible by you, your doctors, specialists or hospitals.
  • Because healthcare providers have access to clinical information, they may have a more detailed picture with which to make clinical decisions, diagnose and provide treatment.
  • In emergency situations, treating doctors can view information such as current medications and allergies.
  • You can personally manage privacy and control access to your My Health Record including what information gets uploaded and who has access.
  • You can see who has accessed your Record.
  • You don’t need to remember the dates of tests, medicine names or dosages.
  • When moving interstate or travelling, your information can be viewed securely online.
  • My Health Record has multi-layered and strong safeguards in place to protect your information.
