This month, responses showed that while the majority of our Panel members required some access to urgent medical care in December, 75% of respondents sought initial care from their local doctor as opposed to a hospital emergency department.
An overwhelming majority also thought it would be beneficial for a doctor to have online access to their current health information when travelling away from home. Despite this, only 57% of Panel members have signed up for a My Health Record.
There are many benefits of having a My Health Record:
Of the 57% of people who have signed up for a My Health Record, 67% of those registered via ‘self-registration’, while 33% selected ‘other’. Interestingly, there are more than 90,300 consumers who have registered for My Health Record within South Eastern NSW.
