My Health Record Provider Champion - Dr Andy Mellis

August 07, 2018

Local Toowoomba practice owner, Dr Andy Mellis, believes that it’s only the beginning for My Health Record.

Dr Andy Mellis currently works between two People First Health Group Practices in the Toowoomba area. As one of the business owners, Andy spends his time combining general practice with business management.

“We have been using My Health Record since its relaunch in early 2017 and only use digital records in our practices,” he said.

“I believe patients benefit from having improved access to their own health information which will hopefully encourage greater individual engagement in their own health.”

“My Health Record will also provide opportunities to reduce the risk of medication errors, duplication and create better treatment processes when medical attention is required away from the patient’s usual medical services.”

Andy is confident that as My Health Record develops and expands, it will become the central source of additional information for GPs when interacting with their patients. He views it largely beneficial to those who visit or receive treatment from multiple health care providers.

The Toowoomba-based GP encourages all providers who are considering using My Health Record to get on board.
