Denmark is considering allowing patients access to their own records by placing them in an electronic patient journal on the internet. The internet connection would also allow speedier access to the patient's own doctor. The move is designed to combat the establishment of successful health portals, such as Netdoktor, by allowing patients to directly consult their doctor with a greater understanding of their own health status. Experts estimate that the implementation of the system would cost the tax-payer "hundreds of millions" of Kroner.
