Lots of Health data is created during the interaction Health Care (HC) professionals have with citizens, in this context known as patients.
Each HC Pro took note of current situation in which patient exist, and from that diagnosis stipulates a ‘get-better’ path, which may include treatment and medication. These notes stayed mostly with this HC pro, sometimes was shared with other HC pros or translated into a workload for nurses or assistants.
Today all these notes from all these HC pros can be collected within a centralised mechanism and dissemminated following strict rules to protect the patient, and sometimes also the pro.
Most of the Personal Health Records are for HC pros, and leave the owner of that data — the patient — ignorant.
Howoever nowadays it becomes possible to bring PHR closed to the citizen.
MediqAid agrees to that.
