You can use your My Health Record to keep track of your medicines, including any medications you currently take, or allergies you might have.
The Medicines information part of your My Health Record brings together information from other parts of your My Health Record and Medicare. This information is then presented in lists.
Your healthcare providers, such as doctors and pharmacists, can also see this information, to assist them in providing treatment and care.
Available medicines information
In the medicines information section, there are three lists available:
- Allergies & adverse reactions and medicines information - lists medicines you are taking, allergies and adverse reactions.
- Prescription and dispense record - lists medications you have been prescribed by a doctor, or prescriptions dispensed by a pharmacist.
- Medicare overview - lists information from Medicare and may include information about medical and pharmaceutical claims, organ donor decisions, and immunisations.
