into their personal pages with their NemID, citizens can access the 'My Health Summary'
service which allows them to have an overview of their health information that
has been gathered from various health sources. This information includes:
medical prescriptions, hospital stays, electronic health records, status of test
results, organ donation and living wills.
Likewise, via My
Page, citizens can order new health cards or change General Practitioners (GPs)
online, among other self-service solutions. In addition, in the citizen
portal's 'Health and illness' section, users can also obtain answers to their
questions about the Danish healthcare system.
This is the
result of fruitful collaboration between Borger.dk and Sundhed.dk, the national eHealth portal. Commenting
on this cooperation, Sunhed.dk Director Morten Elbæk Petersen said:
"Sundhed.dk delivers the most relevant health information to Borger.dk
based on the relationship that Sundhed.dk has with the healthcare
partners." He explained that this merger allows citizens to benefit from
the best service and stressed how easy it is to find answers to all frequently
asked questions on the citizen portal.
Pedersen, Head of the National IT and Telecom Agency, Citizen Communications
Office said: "Borger.dk offers everything in one place. This means that
citizens can find information, use self-service solutions and view on My Page
what personal information the public authorities hold about them".
"The fact that citizens have access to their personal health data on My
Page is another step towards a page with personal details that can really be
used for anything. Therefore, we are also very pleased to collaborate with
One of the most
visited areas of the portal so far is the health card ordering service which
details the application procedure and informs citizens of their application's
status. The section 'Physician choice' is also expected to become popular; it
combines information about the doctors to choose from and makes it possible to
have a change of GP recorded.
