About health record
What is your Health Record?
Your Health Record is data and details of your previous doctor and hospital visits. It also contains your previously prescribed medicines, blood tests as well as your health measures.
Why is your Health Record important?
Our world has been radically transformed by digital technology – smart phones, tablets, and web-enabled devices have transformed our daily lives and the way we communicate. A greater and more seamless flow of information within a digital healthcare environment, can transform the way care is delivered and having a Health Record means your health information is available whenever and wherever it is needed.
How can your doctor access your health record?
Once you have given consent, your doctor can use HealthID to access your medical history, gain insight into the benefits of your medical aid plan, make referrals to other healthcare professionals, study your previous blood test results and write electronic prescriptions, all with a touch of a finger. It’s what your healthcare will look like in the future, today. You can give your doctor consent in real time by signing on screen during your appointment or you can give consent proactively on our website. It gives you peace of mind that your personal information is protected and will only be viewed by the doctors you choose.
