Visibility of all access

Access your record's history to know if and when a doctor has reviewed your information, or if a healthcare provider accessed your record in an emergency.

You always have control

You can restrict access to your record, restrict access to a document or remove a document. You can also change restricted access, so healthcare providers only see what you want them to see.
