What is ManageMyHealth?

ManageMyHealth is a secure website which can receive your health information from your doctors system. It can also be used to store other health related information which may not be recorded within your doctors system, such as other treatments you have received or other medications which you may be taking. This allows access to your personal health information from any Internet device at any time, anywhere in the world. The website has many other features such as health related news, community forums and access to wellness initiatives. Over time we hope to make many more features available within ManageMyHealth, providing an essential online tool to assist you in managing your (& your loved ones) healthcare or wellness.

ManageMyHealth offers you the ability to have an online Personal Health Record which is accessible any time, anywhere. All you need is an Internet connection, ideally broadband.

Your doctor will discuss with you what information may be helpful to you and then decide what information is sent to your electronic health record.

Your online Personal Health Record can be made up of:

  • Consultation Notes, notes created by your doctor during your doctor’s visit.
  • Laboratory results, once your doctor has reviewed your result it is sent to ManageMyHealth.
  • Prescriptions, the drugs that you have been prescribed both long & short term
  • Immunisations, what immunisations you have received.
  • Allergies, that you have been diagnosed with.
  • Diagnosis, shows you what medical conditions you have been diagnosed with, either long or short term conditions.
  • Recalls, shows you any future appointments your doctor has asked you to come in for.

In addition to this you will have the ability to do the following:

  • Secure email: This feature allows you to securely communicate with your doctor and vice versa. Please note the decision to allow you to send emails to your doctor is their decision. Doctors must decide how best to cater for this extra need of their patients. Some doctors will be quicker to embrace this option than others.
  • Journal: Create an online journal where you could enter goals and record your progress, or simply record information you would like to discuss with your doctor next time you see them. You also have the ability to make a journal entry private which means only you are able to access this information.
  • Calendar: You are able to create calendar items to help remind you of things coming up such as any appointments or programs you may be involved with. In the near future we will provide you the option to be reminded via a text message to your mobile phone.
  • Community Forums: You are able to create your own discussion topic or simply join in with existing discussions. If you have any experience or wisdom, other patients similar to your self will be very grateful if you were to share your experiences.
  • Health News: We will monitor the Internet to find any new relevant article which may be of interest to you.

We believe ManageMyHealth will ultimately save you time & money. You will potentially get your lab results quicker, make confirmed appointments after hours, document health goals and record your progress in achieving them. When goals are documented they become imbedded in your subconscious mind and it is a critical step towards achieving them. Do not get too hung up on the HOW you will achieve a goal, instead focus on WHAT the goal is and WHY you want to achieve it. The WHY provides a focus as to WHAT you want to achieve. The greater value you place on the outcome of achieving a goal the more likely you are to want it and make it happen.

Everyone should use ManageMyHealth. Even if you are very healthy and don’t see your doctor often. You never know when an emergency situation may arise where your basic medical information could be critical, such as your blood type or any allergies you may have.

Our aim is not to charge patients for core functionality. Your Healthcare Provider may decide to charge you for various services such as reordering prescriptions and advice. It is entirely up to you whether you use these chargeable services.

In most cases, Yes, you can send a non-urgent message to your clinic using ManageMyHealth if they offer the option to send a secure message.

  • Click on “Compose” icon that is on your homepage and send a secured message to your practice.
  • If you need URGENT medical attention, dial 111 immediately.

Parents can gain access to their children’s records. If you wish to access your children’s health records you should discuss this with your GP. Parents can use one of their email addresses to register their children to ManageMyHealth. You will need an email address for each child you wish to register to ManageMyHealth.

If you have any queries, please email support@managemyhealth.co.nzwith your relevant details eg. the first and last name, date of birth, email id, gender and the name of your GP practice.

It is a Doctors choice whether to allow emails to be sent to them. Or if a patient is using emails inappropriately the doctor can blacklist you, which prevents you from sending them emails. For many doctors this is a new concept which they must get used to and understand how this functionality can be incorporated into their current work practices.

At this stage we have not implemented a print function expect for the Lab results. In the interim if you wish to print contents of ManageMyHealth we suggest you use the print screen function on your keyboard and past this into PAINT to allow you to print it. Please be very careful with your printouts if they contain your health information.

Most test results are shared with you. Your GP needs to review and file the test results before they are sent to your account to view. Please be aware this may take reasonable time. If you have any questions about your test results, please contact your Health Centre by sending a secure message by clicking on the “Compose” icon that is on your homepage or call your clinic.

You will need to phone your Health Centre to be provided with options if all the available appointments are booked or your usual Doctor is not available.

Only Medications marked by your Doctor as long term are available to order. However, if there is a medication that you have had before and want to order, type this in the area for sending through a note to the Doctor when ordering your other Medications.

Security & connection

No, we do not by any means sell your information.

ManageMyHealth maintains a comprehensive access log every time you or an authorised registered health professional access your ManageMyHealth health record. You can access this access history anytime and it is never deleted. If you have a query as to why authorised registered health professional has accessed your information you should contact them directly.

We use a digital certificate from VeriSign which ensures the information is protected by encryption. This feature is active when the path bar is shaded Green and http//: is displayed as https//: the ‘s’ signifying encryption is active. Please note the Green feature is only available if you are using the lastest version of your chosen web browser. When using the website you may notice the Green shade disappears, this means the information is not encrypted such as reading news articles or community forum. Because this is not your personal information we do not protect this information. Applying encryption does take further time to display the information, hence when it is not necessary we do not use encryption so the information is displayed as quickly as possible.

We recommend you use the latest Internet Browser from Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox as this will offer you the best performance and security using 256 bit encryption, which is the highest commercially available encryption strength in use today. However if you have an older version of a browser we can still guarantee 128 bit encryption using the latest digital certificate from VeriSign, which we provide for your protection. 128 bit encryption is currently the NZ health sector standard. For the best experience, performance & protection we recommend Microsoft Internet Explorer version 9.0 or later.

Your GP and clinic staff already have access to your electronic medical records. However, once you activate your ManageMyHealth account, only you have access to your health information. You can choose to authorise access to a family member or caregiver, however you are responsible for what information you share and who you share it with. If you have any security concerns about your medical records, please change your password or let your Health Centre know.

ManageMyHealth emails do not work like normal email. They are not sent over the Internet to a defined location. Instead the emails sent within ManageMyHealth do not leave the ManageMyHealth system. ManageMyHealth emails have been specifically designed to allow you to communicate with your doctor(s) securely, so potentially sensitive emails with your doctor cannot be read by others. Only registered ManageMyHealth users can send & receive ManageMyHealth emails.
