I-MED Radiology connects to My Health Record

My Health Record is a secure online summary of your health information, allowing you to access and manage all your health data in one place.

I-MED Radiology clinics are connecting My Health Record, an Australian Government initiative that maintains a digital record of your essential health information. By June 2024, all I-MED Radiology sites are expected to be connected.  

Your My Health Record includes documents on immunisations, pathology and diagnostic imaging reports, prescription and dispensing information, hospital discharge summaries and more, all in one place. 

Note, your radiology report from I-MED Radiology will be uploaded to My Health Record, but rest assured, you have complete control over your information. You can update your settings and decide what you'd like to store at any time. 

For patients with a My Health Record account 

If you already have a My Health Record account, your radiology report will be automatically sent. If you prefer not to have your radiology results uploaded to My Health Record, simply inform our team, and they will update the settings for your specific examination in our Radiology Information System. 

Please note that opting out of My Health Record does not impact how your referring doctor receives your radiology results or affect I-MED Radiology’s patient results platform, My I-MED. 

 For patients without a My Health Record account 

If you have not registered for My Health Record, your radiology report will not be sent. 

Can you adjust my preferences on My Health Record for me? keyboard_arrow_down

Unfortunately, we can’t do this for you, but you can easily manage your preferences at myhealthrecord.gov.au, linked to your myGov account.

How do I know if I have a My Health Record? keyboard_arrow_down

If you haven’t opted out, you will have a My Health Record. You can cancel your My Health Record at any time by logging into myhealthrecord.gov.au

Can you help me set up My Health Record? keyboard_arrow_down

You can phone the Australian Digital Health Agency’s My Health Record help line on 1800 723 471. Alternatively, you can visit myhealthrecord.gov.au and complete the process online. Unfortunately, I-MED Radiology is not part of the assisted registration program, so we can’t set up My Health Record for you. 

When will my results be available in My Health Record? keyboard_arrow_down

Once your diagnostic imaging report is ready it will be sent to your referring doctor/specialist and uploaded to My Health Record. At this time, you will be able to see the report in your record but will not be able to open the document until seven days later. This time allows your healthcare provider to review and discuss the results with you.

What happens if an addendum is added to my radiology report? keyboard_arrow_down

Occasionally the radiologist can add further or clarifying information about your final report after it has been released to your doctor/My Health Record. In this instance, the addended report will be uploaded to My Health Record as an additional report, provided you have an active account in MyGov. The original report and addended report will have their own distinct date/timestamp in My Health Record. 

What happens if I am an inpatient or visit the emergency department? keyboard_arrow_down

In accordance with the Australian Government’s digital health legislation, diagnostic imaging reports will be uploaded to My Health Record unless the patient tells us they don’t want the report to be uploaded. If a patient is unable to provide consent, I-MED Radiology is covered by legislation for those patients and can upload their results to My Health Record. 

If you inform us afterwards that you do not want your report in My Health Record, you can remove it from your account at any time. I-MED Radiology can also delete reports they have uploaded in accordance with the patient’s instructions.
