My Health Record

My Health Record is the national digital health record system.

Having a My Health Record means your important health information like allergies, medical conditions and treatments, medicine details, test or scan reports can be digitally stored in one place.

Healthcare providers like doctors, specialists and hospital staff can see it online from anywhere at any time when they need to, like in an accident or emergency or if you are travelling and need to see a doctor out of your region.

Health information stored in your record can include information from you, your healthcare providers, and Medicare. As more people use the My Health Record system, Australia’s national health system will become better connected. This will result in faster and more efficient care for you and your family.

Strict rules and regulations on who can see or use your My Health Record protect your health information from misuse or loss.

Will My Health Record be useful for me?

My Health Record can help you in a number of ways: 

  • Keeping track of your own health history
  • Enabling other health professionals you authorise to see your key health summary so you don't have to repeat it or worry about forgetting important information, like medications.
  • Helping you and your healthcare providers to better manage complex or chronic conditions
  • You can customise access to your My Health Record by setting access controls including restricting who can see your information, or cancel your record, at any time.

Watch the story of Ian Gillies (below) or read about locals Ray and Lorraine Gardner, to find out how My Health Record is helping Australians.
