Track your own healthcare with 'Volgjezorg'

Good, safe and prompt healthcare – that is something we all want and need. Whether we are chronically ill or going to an after-hours health centre after an accident. Good, safe and prompt healthcare starts with information - information about our current state of health. But not all healthcare providers know about your current condition(s) or previous medical problems. Fortunately, they can share important data about our health with other healthcare providers through the National Exchange Point (LSP). But only when necessary. And only if we have given prior permission for the exchange of medical data.

On ‘Volgjezorg’ you can arrange your permission for your GP, pharmacies, and your health centre. That way they can help other healthcare providers by sharing your medical data. And you can get the best possible, safest, and quickest treatment.

On Volgjezorg you can also track what happens to your medical data. See what types of data were shared (with your permission). Which healthcare provider(s) accessed those data, and when. That means that you always know what happens to your medical information.

How does it work?

Your GP and pharmacy can connect their computer to the Landelijk Schakelpunt (LSP - or National Exchange Point). Using the LSP, they can share your most important medical data. Another doctor or pharmacy can access this medical data with a secure ID-card and personal password. But only if it's necessary for your treatment. And only if you have given prior permission.

Experiences of patients

"I have quite a few chronic conditions. That is why I use quite a lot of medication, and those pills also vary a lot. When I get some new medicines, it is important that they are well-coordinated and matched with my other medication I already use. That is something which needs close monitoring. Now, I have to keep track it all by myself to prevent something bad from happening. If I have an appointment with physicians, I always go to my pharmacy to get a medication overview. For my health it is of the utmost importance that my physicians are aware of my current medication. The (new) medication they prescribe must match the medication I already take."
