My Health Record

What is My Health Record?

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, from anywhere at any time and it includes information such as:

  • Allergies
  • Medical conditions
  • Treatments
  • Medicines
  • Test and scan results (such as blood tests and x-rays).
Perth Children’s Hospital contributes to Australia’s My Health Record system and is currently uploading information from five clinical applications: 
  • Patient Administration System (webPAS)
  • Notifications and Clinical Summaries (NaCS)
  • iSoft Clinical Manager (iCM)
  • eReferral
  • Allergy and Dietary Advice (ADA). 
These applications upload:
  • discharge summaries
  • shared health summaries
  • specialist letters
  • event summaries 
  • prescription and dispensary records  
  • pathology results
  • diagnostic imaging reports
  • referral information for consumers.  
For a list of benefits of having a My Health Record, please refer to the My Health Record website

If you have a My Health Record these documents will be automatically uploaded, if you do not want this to occur you need to inform us at every attendance. Please ask us for a Change of Consent to Upload Documents to My Health Record form.

For parents

Parents or guardians (who are linked to their child via the Medicare system) are automatically added as an authorised representative to view or delete their child’s record. When the child turns 14, this access will be automatically removed. Read more here

For under 14 years

If you are the parent or guardian of a child or dependent under 14, you can opt your child out of a My Health Record if you don’t want them to have one. More information is available here.

For 14-17 year olds

If you are 14 years or over, it is your choice whether you have a My Health Record or not. You can also give a parent or guardian or other trusted person access to your record, adding them as a nominated representative. If you choose to delete your record, you can do so online or via the My Health Record help line on 1800 723 471. You will need to be able to verify your identity with your Medicare card as well as a current drivers licence/learners drivers licence, Immicard or Passport.
