DK: Danish eHealth portal allows users of health services to become better informed about their rights

Article
Health services users require a broad overview of their rights as patients. In an effort to meet this need, and with the assistance of this target group, Danish eHealth portal 'Sundhed.dk' has compiled key information under a theme called 'Patient Rights'. In order to be able to decipher the law and to seek the aid of a patient advisor in doing so, information from several different areas is needed so as to get an overview of rights and options as a patient in the healthcare system. The Danish eHealth portal has collected information from several entities in the form of an overview of essential patients' rights with links to detailed and relevant data. This new section has been well received by the portal users.
