In future, the aggregate data will be available from
- laboratory tests
- risk data
- imaging studies
- physiological measurements.
The patient data systems can retrieve these data entities and form illustrative patient summaries for the users. It is possible to retrieve data for display in the patient information system if the patient has a valid consent to data sharing and no denials of consent to data sharing have been imposed on the data in question. Citizens can view their own aggregate data in MyKanta.
Requirements for producing the summaries
Patient data system must support structured recording
It should be noted that only some of the data may be available in summary form from data recorded in the previous (2014) version of the definitions. These include parts of risk information, diagnoses and vaccines. Other data recorded in the previous version of the specifications are not available as summaries.
Aggregate data in MyKanta
Aggregate data is gathered in the summaries of MyKanta for viewing by citizens when the healthcare services record and enter data in the Kanta Services in accordance with contents and structures defined on a national basis. However, if data is recorded with the older version of the definition, not all aggregate data can be shown in MyKanta.
Benefits of aggregate data
The structured recording of data and the aggregate data formed from key health data enable better utilisation of the Kanta Services:
- More efficient retrieving and sharing of data in the Patient Data Repository.
- Essential data is easily found.
- Treatment decisions can be made on the basis of up-to-date information.
- Patient safety and efficiency of operations increase when the number of overlapping tests or treatments that are potentially unnecessary is reduced.
- It is easier for citizens to monitor their own health data.
- Information can be better utilised for the needs of secondary use of data and knowledge management.
