Patients in Tasmania’s north west can now access ultrasound reports in My Health Record following the connection of Imaging Plus, a new practice in Burnie.
Practice owner and sonographer Jarrod French said he was pleased to offer people access to their reports in My Health Record.
"As well as sending reports to the referring doctor, the copy of the report shared with My Health Record will assist other clinicians who may be involved in my patients’ care, wherever they travel,” Mr French said.
Amanda Cattermole, Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Digital Health Agency, welcomed the connection of Imaging Plus to My Health Record.
“People are telling us that having information in their My Health Record so that it is available when and where they need it is important for them,” she said.
“In the last year consumer access to diagnostic imaging information in their My Health Record has nearly doubled, with more than 150,000 reports viewed in May.”
“As well as diagnostic test results, people can also see more information about their vaccinations in their My Health Record,” she said.
