null Parents can now view their children’s health records on My Kanta Pages
The much-requested facility in My Kanta Pages has been deployed: parents and guardians will be able to view their children’s health records on My Kanta Pages. At first, the records of children under 10 years of age will be accessible.
The new functionality has been opened today. Now, a parent or guardian will be able to access the data concerning their child under 10 years of age on condition that the adult is the guardian of the child and that the child’s health record has been saved in the Kanta services.
The guardian will be able to see the child’s health record and electronic prescriptions, and request for a prescription to be renewed. They can also acknowledge receipt of information concerning the Patient Data Repository and give consent on behalf of the child.
In My Kanta pages, parents and guardians can view their children’s health records that have been saved in the Kanta services as from 1 August 2016.
Minors can also access My Kanta Pages
Minors can also access My Kanta Pages. To access the service, they need a Finnish personal identity code, as well as bank identification codes, a mobile ID or an electronic identity card as a method of identification.
In the service, they can view electronic prescriptions and health records that have been saved in the Kanta services as from 1 August 2016, and request for a prescription to be renewed.
However, they cannot acknowledge receipt of information sent from the Patient Data Repository, give a consent or refusal, or draw up an organ donation testament or living will.
