My Health Record
My Health Record is a secure online summary of your health information. You can control what goes into it, and who is allowed to access it. You can choose to share your health information with your doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers.
Having a My Health Record means your important health information like allergies, current conditions and treatments, medicine details, pathology reports or diagnostic imaging scan 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.
Who gets a record?
Currently, more than one in five Australians have a My Health Record. From later half of 2018, the program will be expanded to an 'opt-out' participation model, whereby every individual with a Medicare or Department of Veterans' Affairs card will get a My Health Record unless they state they don't want one.
The opt-out period will end by 15 October 2018
Those individuals who do not want to have a My Health Record can opt out by:

What will My Health Record mean for your health care practitioners?
As more people use My Health Record and information in the system grows, it will help support clinical decision-making, decrease search time for relevant information and improve continuity of care.
Clinical leadership is essential in the transformation of healthcare. Australia has a momentous opportunity to create the digital health infrastructure that will produce benefits long into the future.
