My Health Record Integration in Totalcare 8
Equipoise International is proud to announce that Totalcare has been successfully integrated with My Health Record following a comprehensive formal assessment.
Rather than the typical “bolt on” incongruous interface, Totalcare’s development team has worked to seamlessly integrate My Health Record content within Totalcare’s rich document repository, and upload letters and prescriptions created in Totalcare’s clinical module “Mozart” into My Health Record without any additional steps.
Clinicians may choose between simply viewing information shared in the My Health Record, or downloading a copy of My Health Record documents into their local Totalcare document repository. When downloaded, Totalcare displays My Health Record content in document lists, cumulative, timeline and review views with the same power and flexibility as locally created documents.
Letters and prescriptions generated locally can be seamlessly uploaded to the My Health Record when they are printed or sent. Any changes or deletions to previously uploaded content can automatically be superseded or withdrawn from the My Health Record.
My Health Record integration with Totalcare is included in Totalcare 8 and builds on the support for Healthcare Identifiers released alongside Medicare Webservices in Totalcare 7. Totalcare 8 will be available for use in April 2023.
Access to a patient’s My Health Record is available after a clinician has verified the patient’s details and gained access to their My Health Record.
- Patient’s My Health Record access is automatically requested on opening a patient record in Mozart. If a patient has restricted access to their My Health Record, a clinician may request access by providing the patient’s access code or in the event of an emergency, emergency access.

What is the My Health Record?
The My Health Record is a secure shared digital place for storing health information. An initiative of the Australian government, it is accessible by consumers and healthcare providers.
Consumers have control over what information is included in their My Health Record and who can access it. A consumer has the ability to permanently delete their My Health Record at any time.
In February 2023, there were more than 23.5 million My Health Records.
