Safety and confidentiality

All of your information is protected by the Patient Data Act.

Integrated record-keeping, where under certain conditions healthcare providers can obtain direct access to each other’s electronic journal documentation, is not applied in full at Sophiahemmet given that healthcare providers can have different types of journal systems that are not connected to each other.

Contact the clinic you visited for information about integrated record-keeping.

You have the right to deny integrated record-keeping and your preference should be communicated to your patient-assigned physician. Contact your healthcare provider/clinic if you would like to block your entire journal or just parts of it. Blocking your journal will not allow other healthcare providers to gain access to your information. Parents are not permitted to block their children’s medical journal.
