What is a shared health record?

This is a set of documents that your doctor, in consultation with you, decides to share because they are necessary and relevant for better care of your health. Materials on health networks in Brussels, Flanders and Wallonia are your shared health records.

Since there is no legal obligation to publish documents, shared health records are not intended to be exhaustive.  Be mindful that shared health records are not an automatic pooling of all available medical data among all doctors who have treated you in or out of a hospital.

Do not hesitate to ask the doctors that have treated you if they actually publish your medical documents.

Your consent is the starting point for creating your shared health records that are added to each time of you visit different doctors.

The Brussels Health Network platform is your access gateway to your shared health records.
