The new MyHealth application allows citizens to always have an electronic health book at hand, which can be stored … on their phone.
The digital MyHealth application, presented yesterday to Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, at this first stage of work provides access to prescriptions and directions for tests, diagnostics.
• You can manage and view aggregated information about your recipes and directions.
• You have instant and easy access to your intangible prescription history, and you can be notified of new prescriptions and medical research referrals.
According to the Minister of Digital Government Kyriakos Pierrakakis, medical certificates will be added to the application within a month. This means that the doctor will be able to confirm something about his patient through the Push Notifications system (issue a corresponding health certificate, etc.).
The MyHealth app will also act as your personal health secretary as it will notify the citizen of both prescriptions and test referrals. In particular, the system will notify you about the issuance, execution and termination of each procedure (for example, a prescription).
In addition to the insured, the MyHealth system will display all information about other citizens (those who do not have insurance, disabled people, etc.).
How to register with MyHealth
Using the MyHealth app requires registration with the Intangible (Remote) Prescription System and Certified Mobile Phone Number via EMEP (or if you have previously completed an Electronic Responsibility Statement or authorization via gov.gr).
The application can be installed on mobile phones with Android and iOS software. However, it is necessary that the intangible recipe has already been registered. When installing the MyHealth application, you first ask for personal identification, log in using Taxis codes, and then a six-digit code is sent to you for confirmation – OTP (Κωδικός Μιας Χρήσης).
The application has the ability to log in with biometric data (fingerprint) for easy access.
