Using My Health Record

Digital health offers local health care providers and their clients a streamlined means of accessing information which aims to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of care.

Once your organisation has completed the digital health registration and set-up steps to connect to the national My Health Record system, your organisation will be able to start using the My Health Record system features that are available in your clinical software.

To achieve the full potential benefits of digital health for both your organisation and patients, it is important to find ways to incorporate use in to your daily activities.
