MyKanta can be used to access almost all outpatient data. For inpatient care, patients can only view a summary of the stored treatment data.

It is not yet possible for all patient information systems to store all patient data in Kanta. It is therefore possible that, for example, a certain doctor's statement or records of imaging examinations are not visible to the user in MyKanta. 

The recording method affects how the data is displayed in MyKanta

All patient data stored in Kanta are displayed in the Medical records section of My Kanta by service event. These events are known as Appointments in MyKanta.

Some of the data are also visible in MyKanta in their own sections in the Medical records section. These include, for example, vaccinations, records of imaging examinations and doctor's statements. In order for the data appear in its own section, the health care provider must be able to save it in Kanta in a certain format.
