Who has access to your patient record?

Staff at UZ Leuven

Staff at UZ Leuven can view your record, as long as they are directly involved in your care.

Care providers at another nexuzhealth care institutions

UZ Leuven has chosen nexuzhealth to manage your central record. Other care institutions may use the same system, so if you are treated in another nexuzhealth care institutions, your patient record will be shared with your care providers there. As it is important for your attending doctor to see to all information on your condition, you cannot object to the fact that attending care providers at other nexuzhealth care institutions have access to your record.

The number of nexuzhealth care institutions is still growing. You can find an up-to-date list on the website of nexuzhealth.

GP or referring care provider

Through secure online applications, your GP or referring care provider (specialist, clinical biologist, dentist and so on) can also view your nexuzhealth patient record at their practice. Your GP automatically has access to your nexuzhealth record, but other referrers need permission to view your record. Using nexuzhealth’s secure online application, you can manage the access your GP and other referrers have to your records.

What are the benefits for you as a patient?

Thanks to the shared record, you no longer need to reiterate which examinations and treatments have already been performed when you visit your GP or other hospitals. As such, your attending physician will always have a full overview of your condition. This helps us provide high-quality care, prevents duplication of examinations and makes referrals between nexuzhealth hospitals much easier.

What does this mean for your privacy?

Your shared medical record is well-secured. Only care providers directly involved in your care have the right to access your record.

Personal access to your medical record

As a patient, you can access your record via or the mynexuzhealth app.

eHealth platform: Your record with other Belgian care providers

The government has launched secure communication channels through which all care providers involved in your care can exchange your medical details at any given time. As such, care providers who do not use nexuzhealth can access your medical details through this platform.

This exchange of health data can only take place with your one-off consent. You can give your consent via:

How can you decide who has access to your record?

Your patient record is only accessed by your attending care providers at UZ Leuven and the nexuzhealth healthcare institutions, for the duration of your treatment. This is part of the overall care package we provide. You cannot object to this level of access.

Your GP automatically has access to your UZ Leuven/nexuzhealth record. If you do not want this to be the case, you need to explicitly object.


Other referrers do not have automatic access. If you would like to give them access to your UZ Leuven/nexuzhealth record, you need to provide consent.


  • directly at the referrer’s practice
  • at the UZ Leuven registration desk

If you are happy for UZ Leuven to make your record available to other care providers under the eHealth scheme, you need to provide one-off consent. These care providers will also only be able to access your record if you are currently being treated by them.


UZ Leuven respects the Quality Act, which allows you to deny a healthcare provider access to your file. We call this the 'exclusion' of a healthcare provider. You can register this exclusion at UZ Leuven or via the MyHealth platform, depending on your specific wishes and the scope of your requested exclusion.

If you want your exclusion to apply to all hospitals within Belgium, it is recommended that you register this exclusion on the MyHealth platform. If you exclude a healthcare provider here, this will be communicated to all hospitals in Belgium so that they can deny the excluded provider access to your record. You can always revoke these exclusions.

If you want your exclusion of a healthcare provider to apply only within UZ Leuven and other hospitals that use nexuzhealth software for the electronic patient record (see the list of healthcare institutions), you can request the exclusion via

As a parent, you can access your child's medical record. The procedure is different depending on the age of your child (under or over 15 years old). As soon as your son or daughter turns 15, the record is automatically separated from your own account. From then on, your child can grant you access to their rerocd.

You can also grant others access to your own medical record.
