About this Event

This session is presented by the Capital Health Network. My Health Record is a secure, online summary of an individual's key health information, which can provide many valuable benefits for both carers and their loved ones. With permission, the system gives carers control over health and healthcare services being provided, and the ability to see prescribed medicines, as well as pathology and diagnostic reports for the people they care for.

My Health Record also gives carers the capacity to upload important health information including allergies and Advanced Care Directives and it allows movement of a person's medical information from one healthcare provider to another.

In this practical demonstration we will cover:

• Accessing My Health Record

• Privacy and access controls

• Nominated and authorised representatives

• Advance care plans

• My Health Record document types
