My Health Record

What is My Health Record?

My Health Record is a secure online summary of an individual’s health information, and is available to all Australians. Healthcare providers authorised by their healthcare organisation can access My Health Record to view and add to their patients’ health information.

My Health Record contains the following:

  • Event summaries
  • Discharge summaries
  • Event Summaries
  • Pathology reports
  • Current medications
  • Allergies and adverse reactions

My Health Record will:

  • Allow practitioners to have better access to accurate information about patients
  • Allow quick and efficient sharing of patient information
  • Save time by not having to search for records and having accurate information immediately available, allowing more time to treat patients

The benefits of a My Heath Record will be most significant for patients who need to share information with different providers or who have complex conditions. This might include those with chronic conditions, mothers and newborns, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people with a disability, and older Australians.
