Accessing your HbA1c results online without delay now easier than ever with My Health Record 28 March 2023 My Health Record provides a safe and secure place to keep your key health information, available to you and your healthcare team anytime, including in an emergency. It covers your immunisation information, pathology results, scans, current medicines and prescriptions, referral letters, and more. Every Australian now has a My Health Record unless you opted out before the end of January 2019 or cancelled your record. It is available wherever you go, so you don’t need to remember previous appointment dates, medicine names or dosages, or carry health documents such as prescriptions. If your health situation changes, healthcare providers can add this information to your My Health Record. You can also add an advance care planning document to your My Health Record if you should wish to do so. Your pathology reports, including your HbA1c results, can be uploaded by the pathology organisation to your record allowing you to keep track of the checks you have had and when you had them, and monitor your results over time. If your pathology provider uploads your HbA1c results to My Health Record they may be available to view as soon as they are uploaded, giving you access at the same time as your healthcare team. There’s no need to wait the seven day period to access like some other pathology reports. For more information, including how to access, visit the digitalhealth.gov.au website. Or contact the My Health Record helpline on 1300 901 001, 8am – 5pm (AEST/AEDT), Monday – Friday, or email [email protected].
