My Health Record is a secure online summary of health information which improves access to health information for patients, carers and health providers. You can choose who your record is shared with; who accesses it and what’s stored in it.
The benefits of My Health Record include reducing time spent looking for and carrying health information around; avoiding unnecessary repeated scans and blood tests; and you won’t have to repeat health history to different health providers - which is especially handy for people travelling around Australia.
By the end of 2018, every Australian will have a My Health Record unless they choose not to have one during the three month opt out period that will run from 16 July to 15 October 2018.
