My Health Record

for healthcare professionals

Through the My Health Record system you can access timely information about your patients such as shared health summaries, discharge summaries, prescription and dispense records, pathology reports and diagnostic imaging reports. The key benefits of the My Health Record system are:

  • Avoid adverse drug events
  • Enhanced patient self-management
  • Improvements in patient outcomes
  • Reduce time gathering information
  • Avoided duplication of services.

Assisted registration

Most software products used in general practice have the functionality to assist patients to register for a My Health Record.

Medicare overview

When a person’s My Health Record is created, they can choose to have their Medicare data included in their My Health Record.

This can include past (up to two years of prior transactions) and future MBS and PBS (and RPBS) transaction information, their organ donor status (sourced from the Australian Organ Donor Register) and details from their Australian Immunisation Register records.

These records may be viewed individually or in summary via the digital health record Medicare overview.
