My Child's eHealth Record app

Please note

Documents on this page may still refer to our previous name 'Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record (PCEHR)'. We are in the process of updating these with our new name ‘My Health Record’. In the meantime, the information and guidance in these documents is still valid.

The free 'My Child's eHealth Record app' is a simple way of keeping track of your child’s health information, development and immunisations – all in the one place.

If you are an Australian healthcare consumer and a parent of a child (or children) aged 14 or under, and are your child’s Authorised Representative, this app gives you access to the Child Development functions from within your child’s My Health Record.

This app is not a replacement for your child’s health records held by their medical and health care providers.

Before you use this app, sign in with your MyGov account and set up access to your children’s My Health Record. Make sure your children under the age of 14 have a My Health Rcord. If they do not already have one, you will need to first register your children for a record.

To access your child’s My Health Record from this app, sign in with your MyGov account. You can no longer sign in with an australia.gov.au account.

Note:
  • you must have a myGov account and be an authorised representative for a child under 14 with an eHealth record for the app to work
  • state specific content in the app is being rolled out progressively, NSW and Tasmania are the first states
  • if you experience problems, phone us on the Helpline on 1800 723 471 (call charges apply to mobile phones).
The app is available for Android and Apple smartphones and tablets, and can be downloaded to your device from Google Play and the Apple App Store using the links below:
