My Health Record

May 31, 2016

My Health Record is a secure online summary of your health information. You can control what goes into it, and who is allowed to access it. You can choose to share your health information with your doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers.

Having a My Health Record means your important health information like allergies, current conditions and treatments, medicine details, pathology reports or diagnostic imaging scan reports can be digitally stored in one place. Healthcare providers like doctors, specialists and hospital staff can see these details online from anywhere at any time when they need to, such as in an accident or emergency.

Benefits of having a My Health Record

1. Better Access:

Your important healthcare information will be available in one place online that is easily accessible by your authorised doctors, specialists, or hospitals. Your information can be viewed securely online, anywhere, any time.

2. Improved Safety:

In a medical emergency, healthcare providers connected to the My Health Record system can see your health information to provide you the best possible care quickly.

3. More Convenient:

You won’t need to worry about having to remember and repeat your health history like medicines, details of chronic conditions, and dates of recent tests with different or new healthcare providers.

4. Strong Security:

There are strict rules and regulations on who can see or use your My Health Record to protect your health information from misuse or loss. There are penalties for anyone who breaks these.

5. Privacy Matters:

To create a My Health Record, they will collect information about you and your children from Medicare and some other government bodies including your name, date of birth, and Medicare records from the last two years. Registered healthcare provider organisations such as general practices and hospitals will be able to access your My Health Record when providing healthcare to you.

It’s Food Allergy Week!

May 19, 2016

food allergy week

Food Allergy Week is an important annual initiative of Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia that aims to raise awareness about food allergy in Australia, to help reduce the risk of a reaction for those living with food allergy and to help manage potentially life-threatening emergencies when they happen.

Australia has one of the highest incidence of food allergy in the world in fact, one in 10 babies born in Australia will develop a food allergy.

It’s important for all Australians to be aware of food allergies, and know how to respond in an emergency situation. A great way to help raise awareness is to get involved in Food Allergy Week and Show You Care!

There are several ways that you can Show You Care during Food Allergy Week 2016:

  1. Paint one nail to symbolise that one in 10 babies born in Australia today will develop a food allergy and post a pic on your social media channels using #allergyaware.
  2. Adopt an allergy for one day to better understand the challenges allergy sufferers face every single day. Set up an Everyday Hero fundraising page for friends and family to sponsor you.
  3. Download a badge from our website to use through your social media channels
  4. Join our Thunderclap to help spread the word about the importance of understanding food allergy by agreeing to a Tweet, Facebook or Tumblr message being posted on your social media here.
  5. Hold a local community event to raise awareness and/or funds. Download our event guide here.
  6. Make a donation
