Don’t leave home without your My Health Record this holiday season.
If you’re heading away this summer don’t forget to register for a My Health Record.
My Health Record is a secure online summary of your health information. You control what goes into it,
and who can access it. You can choose to share your health information with your doctors, health care
providers and hospitals.
Having a My Health Record means your important health information like allergies, current conditions
and treatments, medicine details, pathology or diagnostic imaging reports can be digitally stored in one
place. Healthcare providers like doctors, specialists and hospital staff can see these details online from
anywhere at any time when they need to, such as in an accident or emergency.
