Latvia has made its first eHealth services available online to provide users with information on their own or their family’s medical health.
The information, which is stored in public registers and is accessible free of charge to all Latvians, has been made available online at the national eGovernment portal 'latvija.lv' .
The eHealth services include 'My state-funded health care services’, which uses the current health payments centre’s database and provides users with information on their own or their children's medical visits and diagnoses.
It also includes 'My data in the register of diabetic patients' providing information that is stored electronically in the register of patients with diabetes mellitus.
In addition it provides newborn baby data which is electronically stored in the register of neonatal information systems.
The portal is the main online source of government information for the Latvian state institutions, the local government and the citizens.
So far, 29 eServices have been made available, which are implemented in collaboration with the government and the local authorities.
