PETALING JAYA, May 23 (Bernama) — PLS Hitech (M) Sdn Bhd Wednesday night launched a RM3 million portal which enables any health centres worldwide access to a patient’s medical record online.
The aim was to make it easier for the patient to get immediate and effective treatment anywhere in the world, PLS Hitech chief executive officer Rahu Pallier said here.
Deputy Health Minister Datuk Dr Abdul Latiff Ahmad who launched the portal, http://www.myhealthinfo.com.my, said the government welcomed the initiative because it would be useful to doctors, patients and insurance companies.
“The problem is the public are concerned with the confidentiality of their health information,” he told reporters.
He said the portal would be used by private clinics and hospitals and if necessary, government doctors would also have access to it.
The public who are interested can register themselves for free with the company and hand over their medical records to be uploaded into the portal.
