Qatar Tribune reported today (July 29, 2018) that approximately 40,000 people have registered to access their personal health records and other medical information using the innovative MyHealth patient portal since it was officially launched last week of March this year.
With MyHealth, patients can access their electronic personal health record online and through a mobile app. The portal is providing patients at Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) and Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) with access to their key health records, including test results, information about upcoming appointments and prescribed medications.
The portal was inaugurated by HE Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa al Thani, the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, in March, and was initiated as part of an ongoing effort to empower patients to take an active role in their healthcare decision making.
Integrated with the Clinical Information System (CIS), MyHealth provides a single record of information, irrespective of where the doctor was consulted HMC or PHCC. The portal also allows patients to view a summary of their visits, upcoming appointments, medications and post-appointment instructions.
Dr Al Musleh added that new capabilities have been added to the portal, including a function that enables patients to send a non-urgent message to their healthcare provider in a confidential manner.
Patients can get more information about MyHealth or assistance to use it by calling Nesma’ak on 16060 or Hayyak on 107.
