What you need to know about My Health Record

The Australian Government has legislated that a My Health Record will be created for all Medicare and Department of Veterans’ Affairs card holders in Australia by the end of 2018, unless they choose not to have one.

My Health Record is an online summary of your key health information. More than 1 in 5 Australians already have one. Over time, My Health Record will bring together health information such as medical conditions, medicines, allergies and test results in one place.

If you are happy for a My Health Record to be created for you by the end of January 2019, you don’t need to do anything.

If you would like to learn more about My Health Record and its benefits, or about how to inform the government that you don’t want a My Health Record, visit myhealthrecord.gov.au
