Progress has been made to connect our healthcare system
The dependency on technology has never been greater than our current times and none more so than in healthcare.
Now everyone can choose to get an electronic prescription, have a consultation with a doctor from home and use My Health Record to see immunisations, including the COVID-19 vaccine. Because, when it comes to improving the health of all Australians, the role of digital innovation and connection is a vital part of a modern, accessible healthcare system.
Now you can use My Health Record to see immunisation history
You can use My Health Record to see all of the immunisations recorded and uploaded by your GP and all of the immunisations in the Australian Immunisation Register in one single view.
You can also prove you have a specified health condition that may make you eligible for an earlier COVID-19 vaccination and to display the date of that vaccine when you have had one.
Now you can get a doctor's consultation from home
With telehealth patients can consult with their doctors by phone or video call, making it even easier to get access to healthcare.
To date, more than 54.3 million telehealth services have been delivered to 13.5 million Australians.
Now everyone can get an electronic prescription
Electronic prescriptions are rolling out now throughout Australia. Over 6.5 million electronic prescriptions have already been delivered as an alternative to paper.
