Working towards implementing systems for My Health Record
My Health Record
What are the benefits?
- It allows people to take more control of their own health and wellbeing, manage their children’s health, and upload key documents, like emergency contacts and advanced care plan wishes.
- Accessing this information can help prevent doctors ordering unnecessary repeat investigations. It also allows our clinicians to see details of your treatment outside SVHM, providing you with the best possible care quickly.
- Enabling other health professionals you authorise to see your key health summary so you don't have to repeat it or worry about forgetting important information, like medications.
- Helping you and your healthcare providers to better manage complex or chronic conditions
- You can customise access to your My Health Record by setting access controls including restricting who can see your information, or cancel your record, at any time
- You can also look up these details from anywhere with internet access.
