Activate Electronic Health Record

After online submission of application, a notification on activating electronic health record (eHR) will be shown on the webpage. Record activation is an important privacy protection measure which authenticates an applicant’s identity to start sharing patient’s eHR in eHRSS. Please provide the identity document(s) [as the one(s) used when making this application] to the staff for identity authentication to proceed with record activation when the patient next visits a registered private Healthcare Provider providing healthcare to the patient, or at any eHR Registration Centre. If you are unable to activate your record in person, you can authorise a person to activate your record on your behalf. Remember to specify at the Online Submission Form accordingly.

Your registration in eHRSS will be effective and you will receive a notification of your successful registration via your selected communication means. Under normal circumstances, eHR within eHRSS sharable scope would be shared to the system within about 30 minutes to 1 hour after record activation.
