E-health care: MijnGezondheid.net
Your own Portal to your medical files, 24/7
You can check your own medical files online via MijnGezondheid.net, or on mobile devices via the app MedGemak.
In your medical files, you will find:
- your doctor’s advice
- test results
- a list of your chronic medication
- can make privacy safe email consultations
- book an appointment with your doctor
- order repeat prescriptions of your chronic medication
How do I log in the patientsportal?
You need to make an account once to access your medical files, see our website under the button “inloggen mijn MGN”. You can login with MijnGezondheid.net. You can use your DigID digital login from the Dutch Government to login.
Is your information safe?
Only you, your doctor and practice staffmembers can view your information. The practice is obliged by law to store your digital files safely. Other people are unable to acces your files.
Be careful about sharing your information with others
We advise you to be very careful with sharing your medical files with other people. Never share your information right away. Carefully think about it first. Share your information only with people you know and trust.
Sometimes insurance companies, your employer or local government can ask for information about your health. You are not obliged to share this. But you can share some information if you want to. Never share your complete file. Only share the necessary information. For example if you are unfit for work, you notify your employer yourself by phone call and can give him a global indication of your condition (for example ‘I have a broken leg’ or ‘I have a pneumonia’). The general practitioner in The Netherlands does not write sicknotes for work or insurance; that is done by occupational health professionals.
Are you in doubt about sharing medical information with someone else? Do not hesitate to ask us what Dutch regulations say about this.
