GPs, hospitals, and pharmacists will try to make patients aware that they can agree to the sharing of their medical data securely via the internet, from this week, according to Inami and the ministry of Health on Tuesday. The data-sharing project fulfills regulations pertaining to privacy policies, and various health providers can access medical “history” and make a diagnosis faster whilst avoiding useless tests.

    To raise awareness, GPs, hospitals and pharmacists will hand out leaflets explaining the online sharing, and how to register. This can be done at www.patient consent.be or with the help of your health provider or your health insurance.
