Rozelle Medical Centre participates in the Goverment’s My Health Record initiative.
Our reception and nursing team are able to upload a health summary with your consent. Please let them know if you would like them to do so and we can provide the paperwork.
In a medical emergency, healthcare providers connected to the My Health Record system can see your health information such as allergies, medicines and immunisations. This helps them to provide you with the best possible treatment and care.
By allowing your doctors to upload, view and share documents in your My Health Record, they will have a more detailed picture with which to make decisions, diagnose and provide treatment to you. You can also ask that some information not be uploaded to your record.
My Health Record has multi-layered and strong safeguards in place to protect your information including encryption, firewalls, secure login, authentication mechanisms and audit logging.
There are strict rules and regulations about who can see and use your My Health Record to protect your information from misuse.
If you do not want a My Health Record created for you, you will need to opt out before the 15th of October 2018. This can be done through their website by clicking here.
