Newcastle-based Clarity Imaging is now sharing diagnostic imaging reports with patients and healthcare providers through My Health Record.
Clarity Imaging radiologist Dr Virgil Chan said his practice was pleased to offer people online access to their reports.
“When my patients need subsequent treatment or travel away from the area, their reports are available to doctors anywhere in Australia” he said.
Patient, Ms Mason said “I have regular scans to monitor my medical condition, so it is reassuring for me that my reports from Clarity will be easily accessible to my GP and specialists when I see them."
Amanda Cattermole, Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Digital Health Agency, welcomed the value that Clarity Imaging reports will bring to My Health Record.
“We know consumers want to see their key health information online and there is particular interest in accessing diagnostic imaging reports.” she said.
“In October, GPs viewed more than 100,000 diagnostic imaging reports and consumers viewed more than 230,000. For consumers, this is a nearly a four-fold increase from last year.”
