The electronic patient record
Information for the public
The introduction of the electronic patient record (EPR) means citizens have the key to their health information in their hands. Thanks to the EPR, they always have access to their own medical data and can decide for themselves who else also has access to their EPR.
The benefits of a personal EPR
- In addition to healthcare professionals, citizens can also store documents that are important to them in their EPR (such as living wills or data patients measure themselves) and add information.
- In a medical emergency, access to all important health data is guaranteed.
- The EPR increases the quality and safety of care as all healthcare professionals involved in a treatment have access to the relevant treatment data at all times.
