With little useful information, is My Health Record worth saving?

Megan Prictor

Australia’s My Health Record is a national, integrated electronic record, intended to overcome the problem of having personal health information siloed in different systems.

The system can hold various past information, including a shared health summary, records of health conditions, allergies and medications, summaries of cancer treatment, test and scan results, hospital discharge notes, vaccination records, organ donation choices, and notes entered by patients themselves.
