Log on healthily using itsme®
Increasingly more people are using the identification app itsme® to log into the Belgian government services. The growing popularity is strikingly high among health institutions such as the eGezondheid.be portal. Of course, the fact that citizens are surfing massively to those websites to see their health data has everything to do with the Covid-19 pandemic. For example, the vaccination campaign is drawing many Belgians to MyHealthViewer.be.
This convenient platform for the Belgian health insurance funds lets you view your personal medical file and consult all your registered vaccinations. Simply log in using itsme® and quickly see when you received which vaccinations.
Since April 8th, high-risk patients for a Covid-19 vaccine have been able to find their scheduled vaccination on MyHealthViewer since April 8th. You can also easily visit your online health insurance provider’s website via the MyHealthViewer platform with the help of itsme®. Here, you can consult health insurance documents and keep your contact information up-to-date.
It is important to protect personal medical data and to log in securely. itsme® only works with the right combination of your smartphone, your itsme® app, and your personal itsme®code. A unique combination that gives only you access.
Know what you are sharing
Moreover, with each identification, the itsme® user knows exactly what data they are sharing with whom. In the case of MyHealthViewer, this involves the eID card number and the national registry number. itsme® closely follows the European regulations for electronic means of identification (eIDAS) and the European privacy regulation (GDPR). This way, digital Belgium can rest easy that all their data is protected in the best possible way.
Since the start of the pandemic, more and more people are finding their way to all types of online government services. That is why today, more than ever, it is important for citizens to be able to log on easily anywhere. You can easily access your medical records on your computer, tablet, or smartphone using itsme®.
