The eHealth record system will provide healthcare professionals with easier access to health information from other healthcare organisations and professionals. This will make continuity of care easier and improve the treatment decisions for your patients.
An eHealth record is a personally controlled electronic health record (PCEHR) of a patient’s health history that is held in one central electronic location and can be accessed by any provider with permission from the patient.
It does not replace the current patient health records kept at your practice.
