Using My Health Record

Digital health is the electronic management of health information to deliver safe, efficient, and better quality healthcare.

Once your organisation has completed the digital health registration and set-up steps to connect to the national My Health Record system, your organisation will be able to start using the My Health Record system features that are available in your clinical software.

To achieve the full potential benefits of digital health for both your organisation and patients, it is important to find ways to incorporate use in to your daily activities.

Tips for using My Health Record

Viewing a My Health Record

Uploading a Shared Health Summary

A shared health summary needs to be uploaded again if there are any significant changes to the patient's record. For example, a new diagnosis or medication.

Other health practitioners have taken the opportunity to upload when completing a health assessment, care plan, cycle of care or for flu immunisations.
