Nova Scotia Online Patient Portal Leading the Way
Posted on August 23, 2016 by Michael Green
By early 2017, Nova Scotia will be the first province in Canada to offer all residents secure online access to their health information.
MyHealthNS is an online tool, or portal, that enables patients and doctors to share information, including routine test results. Once patients have created their secure online health record, they can receive and store test results and specialist reports electronically. They can also log health information, such as blood pressure readings, immunizations, allergies and medications. And, they can view and manage their information on any web-enabled device.
