Some Nova Scotians now have online access to their health records.

Four clinics are taking part in a pilot project through the ‘YourHealthNS’ app.

Premier Tim Houston says this will allow patients to get all their medical information in one place.

“There’s work to be done, but I have to say we’re moving the needle at an incredible pace. We’re doing that by listening to healthcare providers, and to you as patients of the system,” said the Premier.

The clinics are in Liverpool, New Waterford, Westville and Greenwood.

Dr. Aaron Smith with Nova Scotia Health says access is now available for about 12,000 people.

“These clinics are visionaries in how we approach primary care. They are very adept in using patients medical records and digital health approaches,” said Dr. Smith.

The province wants to have the project available for everyone by the end of June.
