Data in MyKanta is private
Your data in MyKanta cannot be seen by anyone who is not attending to your health care. For example, a teacher cannot access your data in MyKanta.

Parents or guardians will also be able to act on your behalf in MyKanta
When you have an appointment with a doctor or other social welfare or healthcare professional, they will assess whether you are capable of making your own decisions with regard to your care and other matters without the help of a parent or guardian. This assessment is carried out separately at every appointment.
The decision-making capacity depends on many things, such as
- reason for the appointment
- care plan.
If the treating person assesses that you are capable of making decisions, you can choose whether your parents or guardians will see your data in MyKanta. If the assessment indicates that you are not capable of making your own decisions on your care, your parents or guardians will also be able to see your data in MyKanta.
