eHealth is the electronic management of health information to deliver safer, more efficient, better quality healthcare.

The personally controlled electronic health record system

People seeking healthcare in Australia can register for an eHealth record – a secure, electronic summary of your important health information.

Healthcare organisations in Australian can also register to participate in the eHealth record system. As more people register and as healthcare organisations join the eHealth record system, the better connected Australia’s health system will become and the better it will serve all Australians.

Visit eHealth website to register for an eHealth record or to find out more information about the eHealth record system.
