My Health Record information for healthcare providers

The Federal Government announced in the 2017 Budget a commitment to continue to expand the My Health Record system.

On 22 February 2019, it was announced that 9 out of 10 Australians now have a My Health Record following the conclusion of the opt-out period.

Positive behaviour change as a result of My Health Record is what drives benefits realisation. The Australian Digital Health Agency is working closely with a range of stakeholders to implement a range of programs to support these changes and to measure benefits of the My Health Record system.

The key benefits of the My Health Record system are:

  • Avoid adverse drug events
  • Enhanced patient self-management
  • Improvements in patient outcomes
  • Reduce time gathering information
  • Avoided duplication of services.

The My Health Record website has information for healthcare professionals on how to register and set-up your practice to the system, how to view and upload information, how to support consumers with questions about privacy and security and a range of tools and training modules. Visit myhealthrecord.gov.au to learn more.
