The Government will provide funding for the continued operation of the My Health Record system, which allows individuals to access and control their own medical history and treatments, such as vaccinations. Nine out of 10 Australians have a My Health Record.

My Health Record is a key component of a modern health infrastructure and is vital in connecting the health system – general practices, pharmacies, private and public hospitals, specialists and allied health professionals.
