REGINA – A pilot program is being launched in Saskatchewan that will allow up to 1,000 people to view their personal health-care information online.
Called the Citizen Health Information Portal, or CHIP, the six-month program will let participants check their personal lab results, immunization history, pharmacy and hospital-visit history from anywhere in the world.

The provincial government says in a release that through a secure, personalized login, people will also be able to add medical information to their files, such as health metrics or reminders to take medication.
Participants can also view their children’s health-care information and ask their doctor or other health-care provider to look at their profile.
Feedback from users will be sought throughout the six-month period.
eHealth Saskatchewan, a Treasury Board Crown corporation that provides health-related services electronically to patients and health-care professionals, is overseeing the program.
