Having a single electronic record with all your health information in one place means that care providers can give you most safe and efficient care possible. That’s why at this organisation we make sure that your health information we record here can be shared digitally with other health care organisations where you are being treated.
Why should I share my record?
- Your clinician will have a clear picture of your health by having a complete view of your medical history.Â This means they can make more accurate decisions about your care.
- You don’t have to explain your medical history every time you go to your carer or clinician.
- It improves your care and prevents unnecessary tests being requested and performed.
Is it my choice?
Yes it is up to you whether your informaton is shared. If you do not want this to happen speak to your care provider.
