Alberta to launch portal so patients can track health data online

In the not too distant future, Albertans will  be able to book a medical appointment, track their cholesterol level, or check their blood tests in a new patient health portal through Alberta Health Services.

Health Minister Sarah Hoffman says the new system is intended to put more power into patient hands.

“Getting results from their lab tests to making sure they (patients) know that a referral has been received by the specialist, that’s a piece of technology we’re hoping to get into the hands of many Albertans.”
