My Health Record

My Health Record is an online summary of your key health information.

South West Healthcare is linked with the My Health Record and electronically sends discharge summaries to those patients who have registered with My Health Record.

When you have a My Health Record, your health information can be viewed securely online, from anywhere, at any time – even if you move or travel interstate. You can access your health information from any computer or device that’s connected to the internet.

Whether you’re visiting a GP for a check-up, or in an emergency room following an accident and are unable to talk, healthcare providers involved in your care can access important health information, such as:

  • allergies
  • medicines you are taking
  • medical conditions you have been diagnosed with
  • pathology test results like blood tests
  • immunisation information.

This can help you get the right treatment. You don’t need to be sick to benefit from having a My Health Record. It’s a convenient way to record and track your health information over time.

Remind the clinician treating you to check your My Health Record.

Patients can visit www.myhealthrecord.gov.au to find out more information. Patients who need extra support can call the Helpline on 1800 723 471.
