The holders of an Electronic Health Record are the patients. Each person has their own electronic health record that contains their medical information. This record is protected by security and privacy policies that ensure the security and confidentiality of patient information.
Doctors, nurses and other authorised health professionals also have access to the patient’s electronic health record for the purpose of providing health care. These health professionals have access to specific information that is necessary to provide care, such as medical reports, test results, medication prescriptions and other relevant information.
