My Health Record Medicines View

The Medicines View extracts and collates medicines information held in the patient’s My Health Record and displays it in a summarised view.

The Medicines View can provide a quick snapshot of allergies and adverse reactions as well as medicines information and save healthcare providers time by reducing the need to search through recent shared health summaries or relevant documents to find this information.

The information in the Medicines View is gathered from:

  • the individual’s most recent (and up to two years’) prescription and dispense records and other PBS claims information
  • the individual's most recent Shared Health Summary and discharge summary
  • available Event Summaries, specialist letters, e-Referral notes and Pharmacist Shared Medicines List uploaded to the individual's record since their latest shared health summary
  • the individual's personal health summary, which may include any allergies or adverse reactions and other key information.
