Our WorkDigital Health - My Health Record

Digital Health

Gold Coast Primary Health Network (GCPHN) has continued its priority focus on Digital Health, so that health information can be shared securely online to deliver safer, better quality healthcare. GCPHN plays a key role in working with general practices to assist them in uploading their patient’s shared health summary and support the sharing of vital information with other healthcare professionals.


The Australian Digital Health Agency recently announced that Digital information is the bedrock of high quality healthcare. The benefits for patients are significant and compelling: hospital admissions avoided, fewer adverse drug events, reduced duplication of tests, better coordination of care for people with chronic and complex conditions, and better informed treatment decisions. Digital health can help save and improve lives.

GCPHN provides support and training to GPs and practice staff to navigate the My Health Record System and has provided advice and support on the requirements of the Practice Incentive Program eHealth incentive.  Support and information has also been provided to general practice on assisted registration for patients.
Nationally over 5 million people now have a My Health Record, with an average of 1 new record being created every 38 seconds. There are also over 10,000 healthcare providers connected to participate.

As part of keeping practices updated about digital health, the latest information and resources are distributed regularly through GCPHN publications and the HealthyGC Digital Health Resources page.
