My Health Record

Murray PHN has partnered with the Australian Digital Health Agency to support provider readiness, communications and community engagement for the My Health Record Expansion across the Murray PHN region.

The purpose of the My Health Record Expansion Program is to bring forward the benefits of the My Health Record system, by delivering Opt Out participation arrangements for consumers.

The implemention of the Opt Out is anticipated to commence anytime soon with all Australians with a Medicare Card to have a My Health Record by end 2018.

As at 11 March, there are 5,632,149 individual registrations and 10,809 health care providers registered. Eighteen per cent of Victorians currently have a My Health Record. Record usage statistics include: 1,007,613 pathology reports, 13,751,462 prescription documents and 583,032 organ donors registered. Register for a My Health Record here.
