SK rolls out mobile access to patient information
May 10, 2023
REGINA – Saskatchewan residents can now view their health records on a mobile device, thanks to the launch of a new app from eHealth Saskatchewan, a provincial agency. The MySaskHealthRecord mobile app functions the same as the website, which allows users to see their lab test results, medical imaging reports, immunization history, prescription history, and clinical visit history, according to a news release.
Users can also add their own information to track and generate reports, set reminders, and share information with other users.
“A lot of my patients want to play a role in guiding their own healthcare, and the mobile app makes it that much easier. I see this as a real enhancement to the care I can provide and my relationship with my patients,” Saskatchewan Cancer Agency oncologist Dr. Nelson Leong said.
The app works on Apple devices running iOS 14 or higher and devices running Android 11 and up.
Those who have a MySaskHealthRecord account can use the app, and residents who don’t have an account can create one online.
The app was developed by Telus, the same company that developed the eHealth mobile website. The government paid $291,000 to create the app.
