Files accessible through the Internet Access to Patient Healthcare Information project contain all necessary information about the state of a patient’s health and are accessible from any computer connected to the Internet. Information can be accessed by the patient or the doctors she/he gives permission to. Only healthcare workers registered in the IZIP system can update medical files. After registration, a patient receives an access code, only known to her/him. After initial registration (activation), she/he is able to access and read her/his medical file. Doctors and other healthcare workers can access these medical files, too, once they have been given permission.
