What is My Health Record?
My Health Record is an online summary of your health information. When you have a My Health Record, your health information can be viewed securely online, from anywhere, at any time. You can access your health information from any computer or device that’s connected to the internet
All Australians have been given a My Health Record and individuals can choose to opt out of the system before 31 January 2019. If you miss this deadline you will still be able to cancel it.
From the age of 14, you can take control of your record and authorise who can view your health information.
