ManageMyHealth


ManageMyHealth is a secure website which can receive and store patients' health information.  The information, for example treatments received or medications, is uploaded via Medtech.  It then allows other health providers or patients, depending on which tool is being used, to view a summary of the patient's health record.


Shared electronic health record

The network is rolling out the ManageMyHealth Shared Electronic Health Record, which will ensure providers are better connected and have the right information about a patient when they need it. 

Practices that share an out of hours roster, as well as other health providers like accident and medical clinics, will benefit from having immediate access to the patient's health record. Patients will have a better experience of the health system and continuity of their care.

The shared electronic health record gives general practice:

  • Easier access to patient information at the point of care
  • Enhanced patient safety and care through safe and secure sharing of patient medical information
  • Better use of your clinical time through easier access to patient information
  • Faster patient diagnosis by having better access to their medical information
  • Fewer chances of any medication errors

The shared electronic health record is designed to work both ways - you get to share a summary of your patient's health information with other providers, and they can share their patients' information with you.  This is a real advantage when patients are receiving care from a clinician or health professional outside their usual practice, or if they register with a new general practice.
