My Health Record supports health professionals to better coordinate patient care by ensuring immediate access to clinical information. This means providers can offer clients the best care possible to reduce adverse events, especially during a medical emergency.
Benefits of My Health Record
Having access to a patient’s key health information allow practitioners to:
quickly gain a picture of the health history of a patient, whether working in the public or private sector;
reduce the time you spend sharing and following up to receive information about patients with other health care providers.
With compliant software, health care providers are able to upload clinical information about patients, which may be viewed by hospitals and other health care providers.
Through the My Health Record system, registered health care providers can access information about their patients such as:
hospital discharge summaries
shared health summaries, which include medications, medical history, allergies and immunisations
event summaries, which details information regarding significant health events
MBS and PBS history and up to date medications
medication, prescription and dispense records
eReferrals and specialist letters
pathology and diagnostic imaging reports (coming soon).
Our primary care support team is here to help health service providers with the new My Health Record system. We can assist you to register as a provider in the system and we also offer ongoing training and support.
