My Health Record

Maya Cherian is our Guest Speaker and her topic is ''My Health Record '' , which is a recent Federal Government initiative .

My Health Record is an online summary of your key health information .  When you have a My Health Record , your health information can be viewed securely online , for 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 information , such as ... 

... Allergies 

... Medicines you are taking 

... Medical conditions you have been diagnosed with 

... Pathology test results like blood tests 

All of these things can be vital and help you get the correct treatment
