Visibility of all access
Access your record's history to know if and when a healthcare provider organisation has accessed your My Health Record.
You always have control
You can restrict access to your record, restrict access to a document or remove a document. You can also change restricted access, so healthcare providers only see what you want them to see.
Access for people you trust
You can give family members, friends, carers or other people you trust access to your record. You can also manage what they can see and do.
Managing someone else's record
An authorised representative is a person who is responsible for managing someone's record if they are not able to make decisions for themselves.

This policy explains how we collect, use, and disclose information to operate and manage the My Health Record system.
