Stichting Cardiologie Geervliet successfully completes VIPP A2 module with EHR & Portal developed by Heart for Health ICT!

1 June 2020

It is with great pleasure that we can announce that Cardiologie Centrum Geervliet has now achieved all VIPP A2 objectives! This marks a major milestone for Cardiologie Centrum Geervliet, which is part of CCN, a chain of independent treatment centres for cardiovascular diseases that distinguishes itself by perfectly adapting its outpatient care to the needs of the patient and the referring physician.

“"H4H ICT has extensive knowledge of VIPP. and supported us during the audit, which expedited the process and led to the desired result.“
Maud de Wildt, Quality and Safety Manager, Cardiologie Centrum Nederland.

The VIPP “Information Exchange between Patients and Professionals” acceleration programme is an initiative of the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport, which aims to make it easier for patients to access their own health records. As of 2020, healthcare institutions have had the legal obligation to give patients digital access to their own medical data and to exchange medication data.

For Cardiologie Centrum Geervliet, achieving the VIPP A2 objectives is one of its first milestones in the standardised recording and sharing of medical data with patients via the patient portal. With this accomplishment, the clinic also complies with the 2020 Client Rights Act, which will come into effect later this year and will make it possible for patients to request a free electronic copy of their own medical record. Patients have access to a patient portal where they can access and download their medical data and correspondence in a secure and standardised manner in accordance with the basic data set for healthcare.

The VIPP 5 follow-up project for the introduction of personal health environments and data exchange between healthcare providers has now also been started, which forms part of the outline agreement between the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport and parties involved in specialist medical care. With MedicalPortal, Heart for Health ICT will continue to support its clinics in achieving these objectives.
