Ask a care provider. 

Where can I request my code card as a non-Belgian patient?

You will find your national register number on the back of your identity card. View examples.

ACCESSING OR OBTAINING A COPY OF A RECORD

As a parent, can I access the mynexuzhealth record of my under-age children?

Medical reports about children under the age of 15 are not available at present. However, you can request a copy - for more details see Can I request a copy of my record?

You may view appointments, information about the illness or treatment, questionnaires, bills and other items (if available) relating to your child. To do so, go to ‘Messages’ in mynexuzhealth, select the UZ Leuven address (also when you are a patient in another hospital) and send a formal request stating your child’s name and date of birth to ‘Patient-related support’. You will be notified once your mynexuzhealth record has been linked.

As a patient, can I give my partner, parents, children over the age of 15 ... access to my mynexuzhealth record?

This can only be due if you have power of attorney from the patient.

Designation of a trusted person

Download the form, and return it once it has been completed and signed by the patient. It can be returned via Messages in mynexuzhealth,  select the UZ Leuven address (also when you are a patient in another hospital) and choose the ‘Patient-related support’ service. Or send the form by email or post to your hospital’s ombudsman service. 

A trusted person can

  • enquire about the patient’s state of health and its likely development
  • inspect the patient record
  • request a copy of this patient record

Designation of a representative

Download this form to represent the patient if he/she is unable to make decisions about the healthcare to be provided or to exercise his/her rights as a patient. Return it once it has been completed and signed by yourself and by the patient. It can be returned via Messages in mynexuzhealth to the ‘Patient-related support’ service or by email or post to your hospital’s ombudsman service.

With this form, you as a patient can request the revocation of the designated representative.

Can I request a copy of my record?

As a patient you may request a copy of your medical file (at cost price). After the patient’s death, only indirect access to the patient record is possible, via a professional practitioner. You will find the necessary forms here.

Who still has access to my record?

Information about your privacy and who has access to your file can be found here. Under ‘Access’, you will find a list of the GP(s), caregivers and any trusted person or representative with access to your mynexuzhealth record.

Your GP has automatic access to your file. If you do not want this, you can report this at the registration desk of your hospital or revoke access in mynexuzhealth.be.
Other referrers do not have automatic access to your nexuzhealth file. If you want them to have access, you must give permission for this at the referrer himself or at the hospital's registration desk. If you want to subsequently deny a referrer access to your file, you can also go to the registration desk or to mynexuzhealth.be.

REPORTS

Points to consider when consulting reports

As a patient of a nexuzhealth hospital you have direct access to the medical records and documents from your electronic patient file.
Your file may contain certain medical terms or other data that are not clear to you or that raise questions. The available information was after all not edited and not adjusted in terms of language, content or form. Moreover, reports are not only drawn up on the basis of elements that are established during the examination, the consultation, the procedure or the contact, but also on the basis of information that is already present in your patient file.

Do you have any questions or would you like more information? Discuss this with your doctor or treating physician during a consultation. Questions about your file cannot be discussed by telephone or mail.

Certain reports are not (immediately) visible through this application because they have not yet been validated or because your treating team has designated them as a protected report. Protected reports may contain data about third parties or data that fall under the term 'therapeutic exception'.

Information from your electronic patient file is strictly personal and confidential. Handle it with care and do not share information with third parties who are not entitled to it. Nexuzhealth is not responsible for any damage, of whatever nature and size, that is caused directly or indirectly by sharing information from your patient file with third parties.

Missing reports

What you see depends on the nexuzhealth partner to which the report belongs. Under the heading 'Your hospital' you will find the status of acces to the electronic patient file (reports) for each partner.

The first reports that are shown via mynexuzhealth date from 15/08/2016 or more recently. Reports from before 15/08/2016 are not available in mynexuzhealth.

If you want a copy of your file, please contact the 'Patient record access/copies' service of your nexuzhealth partner. Your file will then be made available on paper.
