Personal Health Record

Kanta Personal Health Record (Kanta PHR) is a Kanta service in which users can save their wellbeing data. In future, users may give their consent to healthcare and social welfare professionals to use the data in support of their patient care or service relationship.

The service was deployed for the first-phase production use in spring 2018. Currently, citizens can record their wellbeing data in Kanta PHR with accepted wellbeing applications developed for this purpose. Further information about the service and the latest news are available on the Wellbeing data page.

In future, citizens can give their consent to share their measurement, lifestyle and activity data in Kanta PHR with healthcare and social welfare professionals. The completion of the requirements for professional use and professional applications is progressing as a result of the new Client Data Act. The Client Data Act sets the transition period until 1 January 2024, by which date the Kanta Services must be ready to share wellbeing data from Kanta PHR with healthcare and social welfare service providers.

Use of Kanta PHR in wellbeing applications and My Kanta Pages

Citizens can save and process their wellbeing data in Kanta PHR with wellbeing applications and measuring devices developed especially for this purpose. Users can also view the data in Kanta PHR via My Kanta Pages in the Kanta Services.

Data to be recorded include, e.g.

  • various measurement data (e.g. blood pressure, respiration rate)
  • symptom assessments
  • examinations
  • self-care plans.

In connection with the deployment, the citizen grants the application access right to process their wellbeing data in Kanta PHR in the way presented by the application. The access right can also be removed via My Kanta Pages.

Functionalities for healthcare and social welfare professionals

  • the citizen’s consent
  • care relationship or context
  • a professional application accepted for Kanta PHR at their disposal.
