This is the official eHealth Record website. The eHealth record is a summary of patient’s health information which is stored online. PCHER is a key initiative in the government’s eHealth strategy. This website provides the portal for registration and setup for healthcare providers.
3. Medicare Online Australia
Most eHealth is handled through the above two sites – however some legacy tasks and information for practices is still accessed through Medicare Online.
