Digital Health Update - October 2018

October 15, 2018

West Moreton Health is now uploading pathology results to the My Health Record system

West Moreton Health is now sending finalised pathology results to patients’ My Health Records. Healthcare providers registered with the My Health Record system can access this information as soon as it is uploaded to a patient’s My Health Record.

With an increase in Queensland Health documents being sent to the My Health Record system, GPs can expect to receive an increase in patient enquiries. 

Visit the Queensland Health website for more information on how they use the My Health Record system.
