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 a 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. 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.
AIVD (National Intellegince and Safety Service) has no access to the National Exchange Point: medical data is safe even after the introduction of the new 'Sleepwet' (Wiretapping Bill)
Your doctor and pharmacist can only share your medical data if you give them permission in advance. And other caretakers can only view your info...
