Start using My Kanta!
The FSHS general health and mental health services joined the nationwide Kanta service in June 2016.
You can use the My Kanta pages to view your health information, electronic prescriptions and more – wherever and whenever you want.
If you give your consent, other healthcare service providers can access your patient data from the FSHS patient data system and vice versa. The benefit of this system is that if you see a doctor somewhere else, the data will be passed on to the FSHS and can thus be taken into consideration during subsequent treatment visits. Data will be shared with different parties only if you consent to this, and you can choose which data is visible to which service providers. The consent can be cancelled at any time.
