My Health Record initiative

My Health Record is an online summary of each individual’s health information which can be accessed by the doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers nominated by that individual or their identified carer.

The program will be expanded to cover all Australians by the end of this year, unless an individual chooses not to be included during the three-month opt-out period – between 16 July and 15 October 2018. It is important to ensure all members of our community are aware of this significant initiative.

More details about the program are available from https://www.myhealthrecord.gov.au/
