When booking in for your appointment, you may be asked if you are registered with eHealth or would like to register. This process only takes a couple of minutes but it could be very beneficial to your health in the future.
Having a My Health Record means your important health information like allergies, current conditions and treatments, medicine details, pathology reports or diagnostic imaging scan reports can be digitally stored in one place. Healthcare providers like doctors, specialists and hospital staff can see these details online from anywhere at any time when they need to, such as in an accident or emergency.
A My Health Record will be created for every Australian who wants one after 31 January 2019. It’s your choice. If you don’t want a record created for you, complete this online process. You will need your Medicare card and driver licence (or other identification) to complete the opt-out process. Opt Out Here
