My Health Record is the new name of 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 may be able to see it online from anywhere at any time when they need to, like in an accident or emergency.
As more people use the My Health Record system, Australia’s national health system will become better connected. This will result in better, faster and more efficient care for you and your family.
Over 2.6 million Australians already have aMy Health Record (once called the Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record or PCEHR). Nearly 2,000 Australians are signing up every day.
My Health Record is protected and regulated by law, just like online banking.
