HE Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nasser Bin Khalifa Al Thani, Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, officially inaugurated MyHealth patient portal at the sideline of the exhibition accompanying the Middle East Forum on Quality and Safety.
Her Excellency Dr Hanan Mohamed al-Kuwari, Minister of Public Health (MoPH), along with senior leaders from MoPH, Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), and the Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) were also in attendance.
Her Excellency Dr Al-Kuwari underscored the importance of empowering patients to take an active role in their healthcare decision-making.
MyHealth will empower patients by allowing them to play a more active role in controlling their health information and making more informed decisions about their well-being. It helps patients stay on track by providing up-to-date information about lab results and active medications and provides reminders about appointments, HE Dr Al-Kuwari said.
As part of the Clinical Information System (CIS), the portal allows patients to securely access their personal health records, she pointed out.
With MyHealth, patients can access their electronic personal health record online and through a mobile app. Features of the portal include the ability to access lab reports, view and reschedule upcoming appointments, and review discharge summaries. The portal also allows patients to send a non-urgent message to their healthcare provider in a confidential manner.
The nationwide launch of the program follows a successful pilot conducted at HMC and PHCC.
