Every time you visit a healthcare professional, or a hospital or other medical facility, important information about your health is created and stored at that location. Currently it is hard to access and share this information with the health professionals involved with your care. An eHealth record is an electronic record that contains a summary of your health information. You can add information to it and you can allow healthcare professionals to view this information and to add new information.
Discover how an eHealth record is created, what it contains, how you can use one and how it is kept safe.

People seeking health care in Australia can now register for a personally controlled electronic health (eHealth) record.
Registering for an eHealth record will help you take control of your health and your health information.
