What is a 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.
How do I register my organisation to participate in the My Health Record system?
To ensure your Healthcare Organisation can view its patients’ digital health records, your organisation needs to register to participate in Australia’s My Health Record system.
Once your organisation is registered, Individual Healthcare Providers and other relevant employees can be authorised to access the My Health Record system on the organisation’s behalf.
Before you start the registration process, it is important that you understand the steps involved and the key concepts relevant to participating in the My Health Record system.
How do I assist patients register?
Assisted Registration is a way for Healthcare Organisations to help individuals register for a My Health Record.
If a Healthcare Organisation chooses to provide this voluntary service to individuals, it does so by submitting an individual’s details to the My Health Record System Operator using compatible software. In doing so the organisation asserts that it has checked the individual’s identity and obtained their consent to being registered and having their health information uploaded to their My Health Record. If successful, the individual will be registered almost immediately and the organisation will be able to upload clinical information about the individual to their My Health Record straight away.
