Thursday, November 15 is the last day people can choose not to have their own My Health Record created to store you important health information and share it securely online with your health professionals.   

To date the MPHN digital health team, have provided 145 face-to-face opportunities for people to learn about how a My Health Record works, its benefits and how you can control your privacy.
