Upload My Health Records
‘My Health Record’ is a secure online summary of a Patient’s health information. The Patient can control what goes in it and who is allowed access, also being able to choose to share their health details with their Doctor/s, Hospitals and other Healthcare providers.
The Townsville GP Superclinic is connected to the ‘My Health Record’ system – as a Patient you can ask us to add your health information to your ‘My Health Record’.
Benefits of having a ‘My Health Record’
Access: Your important healthcare information will be available in one place online that is easily accessible by your authorised Doctors, Specialists or Hospitals. Even if you move or travel interstate, the information can be viewed securely online, anywhere, any time. Your Doctor can see or add information to your My Health Record – current Medicines you are taking prescribed by your Doctor, Allergies and adverse reactions, Summary of your medical history and vaccination history.
Safety: In a Medical Emergency, Healthcare providers connected to the My Health Record system can see your health information to provide you the best possible care quickly. If you choose, you can list any allergies, adverse reactions and medical conditions you have to help Healthcare providers give you better advice and treatment.
Convenience: You won’t need to remember and repeat your health history like medicines, details of chronic conditions and dates of recent tests with different or new Healthcare providers. The same goes for your Children’s health history, like immunisations and medical tests.
Secure: If you choose, you can control who sees what information in your My Health Record.
Privacy: Privacy is adhered to. A My Health Record is created from information collected about yourself, and children from Medicare and other Government bodies.
