A MyHealth.Alberta.ca HealthVault account is created when you activate the personal health record feature of your MyHealth.Alberta.ca account. Each person who uses MyHealth.Alberta.ca HealthVault must have their own account.
A MyHealth.Alberta.ca HealthVault record stores health information for 1 person. An account can hold records for many people. Each record can be managed separately from other records.
When you activate your MyHealth.Alberta.ca personal health record (PHR) you'll also create a MyHealth.Alberta.ca HealthVault account. MyHealth.Alberta.ca HealthVault is a secure data storage feature used to keep all your health information. Information you enter into your PHR, information from a medical device, or information from another data source can all go into your MyHealth.Alberta.ca HealthVault account.
Your MyHealth.Alberta.ca HealthVault account is yours, so only you decide who can see, use, add, and share info, and which health apps have access to it.
MyHealth.Alberta.ca HealthVault won't share your health information to any other app or service without your permission.
The Connect to Alberta Netcare feature allows you to have a copy of your prescription fill history from Alberta Netcare transfered into your personal health record. To make sure your information is always secure and private you'll have to verify your identity before you can use this feature.
Alberta Netcare is the Government of Alberta's provincial electronic health record. It's used to store your health information, like diagnostic imaging, prescription history information, lab results, and other information. The information is entered by Alberta pharmacies, hospitals, clinics, labs, imaging facilities, and specialists.
A feature of your MyHealth.Alberta.ca account is the ability to link to Alberta Netcare and transfer information stored there (prescription history information) into your personal health record.
