HelseNorge for patients

PatientSky is integrated with HelseNorge. For you as a patient, this means that if your general practitioner (GP) uses PatientSky, you will be able to book appointments and send messages to the clinic from the HelseNorge portal.

What is HelseNorge?

HelseNorge is the public online service for healthcare information for citizens in Norway including services delivered from different actors in Norwegian healthcare. Through the helsenorge.no portal, you as a patient can access your health information, change general practitioner, get an overview of your prescriptions and vaccines.

HelseNorge and PatientSky are two separate systems talking together. The systems are integrated to make the best work experience for both doctors and patients.

Which services are available at HelseNorge is depending on which services your GP is offering, e.g. appointment booking or e-consultations.
