My Health Record

25/05/2016

Your child’s important health history – online, secure and easy to use.

 

The Australian Government is giving everyone in north Queensland a My Health Record - a secure, online digital health record.

 

My Health Record allows parents to keep track of their children’s immunisations, developmental milestones, healthcare provider or hospital visits, and other important medical information.

 

By choosing to have a My Health Record for you and your family, you will record your child’s health story as it happens. This means that when you need to have the right information, it will be there at your fingertips, giving you peace of mind.

 

Healthcare providers such as doctors, specialists and hospital staff will be able to access it when they need to, like in the case of an accident or emergency.

 

My Health Records will be created in mid-June and from mid-July healthcare professionals will be able to start uploading information into them.  If you don’t want a My Health Record created for you or your family, you need to tell the My Health Record team before 27 May 2016. To opt-out before 27 May or to deactivate your record after 27 May, please visit www.myhealthrecord.gov.au or call 1800 723 471.

 

As a parent, you can apply to access and manage your child’s My Health Record online. The child development section of your child’s My Health Record is a place where parents can add information about their child’s early health, growth and development. When your child is over the age of 14 years old, they can apply to manage their own record.
