At this weekend’s Nepean Disability Expo, carers will have the opportunity to learn more about My Health Record and how it can assist them in caring for loved ones.

Following a successful trial in 2016 that included the Nepean area, a My Health Record is being given to every person in Australia by the end of this year. My Health Record is an individual’s online summary of key health information which is easily accessible by doctors, specialists, and hospitals. With shared health summaries, hospital discharge summaries, prescribed and dispensed medicines digitally accessible to authorised health practitioners, there is no need to worry about forgetting important information, like medication names and dosages – it is in My Health Record.
