My Health Record update

18 March 2019

9 out of 10 Australians have a My Health Record and we are seeing a trend of increased usage and adoption from healthcare providers.

We’ve also seen a considerable increase in requests from health professionals who are eager to learn more about the system. The My Health Record Expansion team has been visiting general practices, medical specialists, allied health professionals and pharmacies to ensure providers have the knowledge and resources they need to make use of the numerous benefits the system offers, including improvements in patient outcomes and avoided duplication of services.

We have held and are continuing to hold free workshops which are planned until end June to help practices in our region be ready. We send out My Health Record eNewsletter updates monthly, of which links to previous ones can be found on our website. If you or any providers you work with have any questions regarding My Health Record, please contact the team via myhealthrecord@cesphn.com.au.
