Emily's My Health Record story

As a young Australian living with type 1 diabetes, Emily uses her My Health Record to coordinate her care between multiple healthcare providers. She is also reassured that doctors have her health information on hand in case of an emergency.

“I love to travel. My Health Record is really handy when I’m out and about – not only in Australia but overseas as well. I can log on, see my records and show the GP if anything was to happen to me while I was travelling.”
