    • The medicines information view can quickly sort and display the medicines information that is held in a patient’s My Health Record documents. This information is sorted in either date or alphabetical order.

      The information in the medicines information view is gathered from:

      • the patient’s most recent (and up to two years’) prescription and dispense records and other PBS claims information
      • the patient’s most recent shared health summary and discharge summary
      • recent event summaries, specialist letters and e-Referral notes uploaded to the patient’s record since their latest shared health summary, and
      • the patient’s personal health summary that may include any allergies or adverse reactions and other key information

    • The shared health summary represents the patient's health status at a point in time. Shared health summaries can be created at any consultation, and may include information about a patient's medical history, including: 

      • Medical conditions
      • Medicines
      • Allergies and adverse reactions
      • Immunisations

      The most recently uploaded shared health summary in a patient's My Health Record is likely to be the first document accessed by any other healthcare professional viewing a patient's My Health Record. A shared health summary can only be authored/created by a patient’s nominated healthcare provider (as defined in the My Health Records Act 2012). Another employee in the organisation can upload the document on behalf of the author/creator.
