My Health Record ‘how to’ guides for clinical immunology/allergy specialists
Two NEW fact sheets have been developed that support clinical immunology/allergy specialists when using My Health Record. A webinar recording is also available that explains the My Health Record system from an immunology/allergy perspective.
My Health Record can provide you with your patient’s medical history such as prescription and dispense records, pathology and imaging results and hospital discharge summaries that you may find useful in your consultation.
Specialists using software that is compatible with the My Health Record system (e.g. Genie) can upload an event summary to their patient’s My Health Record. This includes information about their test results, confirmed allergic status, management plan, commencement of allergen immunotherapy or other treatments.
On 16 June 2020, the Australian Digital Health Agency in partnership with the National Allergy Strategy hosted a My Health Record webinar for clinical immunology/allergy specialists. The webinar was co-presented by Dr Kathy Rainbird from the Australian Digital Health Agency and Dr William Smith, clinical immunology/allergy specialist. The webinar recording and presentation are available on the National Allergy Strategy website from the Australian Digital Health Agency Project | Health Professionals page.

The National Allergy Strategy is a partnership between the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) and Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (A&AA) in collaboration with other stakeholders.
Allergic diseases have become an increasingly important chronic disease and public health issue in Australia and other developed countries over the last two decades, contributing to increased demand for medical services, significant economic cost of care and reduced quality of life of people with allergic diseases and their carers.
The National Allergy Strategy has received funding from the Australian Government Department of Health for the following projects: Food allergy prevention | 250K Youth Project | Food service | Drug allergy | Shared Care Model
