Are you ready for ehealth?
To take full advantage of Australia's new ehealth system, patients should have their own Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record (PCEHR).
The PCEHR allows patients to have an online health summary about themselves stored at no cost in a secure system established by the Australian Government. This is particularly beneficial to patients with multiple or complex medical conditions, or those who take a large number of medications if they happen to go to hospital or see a doctor other than their own, such as when travelling.
The Elms will be holding a special registration day where patients can sign up for a PCEHR with assistance from Medicare Local staff on:
Wednesday 18th December 2013 between 10.30am and 4.00pm.
There is no cost to register or to have a PCEHR.
For further information about ehealth and the PCEHR, visit www.ehealth.gov.au, or speak with our reception staff.
