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:
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.
Our aim is not to charge patients for core functionality. Your Healthcare Provder 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.
These are the medical records that the practice you registered with has within their Patient Management System. This is often referred to as primary care medical history.
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™. (This is required to keep each child’s records separate). Please note that if the parent is also registered to ManageMyHealth™, then you will need to use a different email address for your children.
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.
When you go and see your new Doctor ask them to link you to their Practice. Once this has been done information from this system will be sent to the website for you to access.
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.
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.
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.
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. 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.
