A new website will give Saskatchewan residents the ability to quickly and conveniently access their health records online.
The site is MySaskHealthRecord. It was launched earlier today by Rural and Remote Health Minister Warren Kaeding.
“This is a game changer, giving patients the information they need to play an active role in their health care,” Kaeding said in a press release. “Some provinces that offer similar programs have delays built in so that people have to wait to see their own personal health information, and some provinces only provide limited lab results or require people to have a family physician in order to sign up.
“Saskatchewan is leading the nation with the rollout of MySaskHealthRecord. Our program gives people access to their lab results, plus other important health information, as soon as it’s available.”
Saskatchewan residents who are 18 year of age and over are able to register for MySaskHealthRecord. You will need a valid Saskatchewan health card as well as a Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) driver’s licence or SGI photo ID card.
Once registered, you will be able to access personal health information, including laboratory test results, medical imaging reports, and clinical visit history, including hospital admissions. You will also be able to add personal information to track and generate reports; set medication and appointment reminders; and upload information from health devices such as wearable activity trackers.
The government says that all personal health information in MySaskHealthRecord will be kept secure and private.
