My Health Record myth-busting on Esperance 103.9 Hope FM

Listen to Sam McMillan, My Health Record Trainer at WA Primary Health Alliance, who speaks with Judi Woo on Esperance’s 103.9 Hope FM about the benefits of My Health Record.

Sam talks about the privacy and security settings in My Health Record and busts the myths about the digital health database and who can access your personal record.


A team of My Health Record experts is visiting the Goldfields-Esperance region between 3 and 5 October. There are community information sessions held in Hopetoun, Ravensthorpe, Esperance, Norseman, Kalgoorlie and the Shire of Menzies to inform the public about the benefits of My Health Record, and how to opt-out, if they wish.

By the end of 2018, every Australian will have a digital My Health Record, unless they choose not to have one. Having a My Health Record means that a summary of a person’s important health information like allergies, current conditions and treatments, medication details, pathology reports or diagnostic imaging reports can be digitally stored in one place.
