E.C.A.R.E

Evolving

Capability to upload to My Health Record is evolving.
It is anticipated that eventually all discharge summaries or letters from ED and the broader hospital will be uploaded, even if they aren’t now.

Consolidated

My Health Record is a consolidated collection of patient health documents.
You can find information from outside your local hospital network and from other healthcare providers you wouldn’t normally be able to access remotely eg. GPs, private specialists and community healthcare practitioners.

Accessible

You can access My Health Record at any time.
There’s no need to wait for the GP practice to open when it’s after-hours. Summary information can be accessed at any time of the day.

Reduce Test Duplication

My Health Record helps to reduce unnecessary testing by collecting a record of pathology and diagnostic imaging reports.
You may find previous results to avoid having to re-take blood or perform scans.

Electronic

My Health Record is a digital tool and accessible online.
In some cases, this will eliminate requests for faxed or paper records when you need patient information from outside your ED. Patients may also be able to show you their My Health Record via an app on a tablet or mobile device.
