Why do I need an australia.gov.au account to access an eHealth record?
An australia.gov.au account is required for you to securely access an eHealth record at the National eHealth Record System. The National eHealth Record System relies on the security and online protection offered by an australia.gov.au account in order to keep access to your eHealth record safe.
An australia.gov.au account lets you access multiple online government services with a single user ID and password. Once you have registered for an australia.gov.au account, you can link it to services relevant to your dealings with government.
