On July 1, 2017 a new law entered into effect: de Wet Cliëntenrechten in de zorg (the Law on Client Rights in Healthcare). Some parts of this law already apply, other parts will enter into effect on July 1, 2020.

For example, all patients must have access to their own medical data by that date. And all patients must be able to control their permission(s) even more accurately.


Volgjezorg is future-proof

Volgjezorg complies with all applicable laws and regulations regarding the exchange of medical data. And will continue to do so. Volgjezorg will keep up with all new developments regarding the access to medical information. With new features in a secure environment.



Currently, two pilot studies are being conducted. These encompass the downloading of patients own medical data to their smartphone.

And within the PROVES programme, the first proof of concepts (POCs) are being carried out for the MedMij and GTS (Specified Permission) programmes. MedMij will ensure that everyone can have their own medical data in one personal health protal (PGO). GTS will provide specified permission.

Volgjezorg will keep you informed of all new developments in this area.
