SPMS launches the OurHealth@PT action to expand and improve the quality of MyHealth@EU services in Portugal

SPMS is coordinating the new action OurHealth@PT – Expansion of the Cross-border services in Portugal and implementation of the ‘Laboratory Results’ service – that will expand MyHealth@UE services in Portugal, thereby strongly contributing to the development of the European Health Data Space (EHDS) and expansion of the cross-border digital health services coverage in the European Union (EU).

This action, co-funded by the European Union, intends to assist SPMS in its ongoing efforts to develop MyHealth@EU services in three key areas: enhancing the quality of services already implemented, expanding service coverage in Portugal to include all national pharmacies and hospitals, and introducing new services.

The OurHealth@PT action will support Portugal’s objectives of strengthening and improving its cross-border electronic health data sharing services, expanding the availability of these services to a greater number of citizens.  As a result, the action intends to give EU citizens the chance to fully benefit from MyHealth@EU services, which will be expanded to include a wider range of services provided, starting with the integration of laboratory results services.

This action will ensure secure access to citizens’ health-related information during the provision of cross-border healthcare between European healthcare systems, as well as increased accessibility to electronic prescriptions. This will help ensure the safety of citizens who require emergency medical care when abroad by providing medical professionals quick access to essential medical information.

By conducting this action, SPMS reaffirms its commitment to digital health innovation and continues to pursue its objective of offering more and better digital healthcare services to citizens.

Approved by the European Commission within the scope of the EU4Health 2021-2027 program, this action officially began this December, lasting four years.
