Connecting your care
What does it mean for you?
Having a single electronic record with all your health information in one place means that care providers can give you the most safe and efficient care possible.
That's why at this organisation, we make sure that your health information we record here can be shared digitally with other health and care organisations where you are being treated.
Is it my choice?
Yes - it is up to you whether your information is shared. If you do not want this to happen, please talk to your care provider.
Why should I share my record?
Your Clinician will have a clear picture of your health by having a complete view of your medical history. This means they can make more accurate decisions regarding your care.
You don't have to explain your medical history eery timeyou go to your Carer or clinician.
It improves your care and prevents unnecessary tests being requested and performed.
