Having information about your allergies and adverse reactions and other medical history in your My Health Record is important to keep you safe.
The National Allergy Strategy is working with the Australian Digital Health Agency to make sure that information about your allergies and adverse reactions is easy for doctors and other health care providers to find in your My Health Record.
It is important that your health care providers are able to access the information when they need it. In an emergency situation it could be life saving for doctors to know if you are allergic to some medications.
The National Allergy Strategy is working with the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy to encourage more health professionals working in allergy to access and upload patient information in My Health Record more frequently.
