La Meva Salut is a digital, personal and non-transferable query space which allows you to access your healthcare information, make enquiries and carry out electronic procedures in a secure and confidential manner. You no longer need to store reports and documents at home, as you can now retrieve your personal healthcare data from any location, via any device.
La Meva Salut is currently going through a phase of evolution. The centres that make up the Integrated Public Use Healthcare System of Catalonia (SISCAT) are progressively adding services and information to the web. For this reason it is possible you may not find all the details of your medical history, because they are in the process of being included as they are provided by the different healthcare centres.
La Meva Salut is available in Catalan, Spanish and Occitan-Aranese.
What information does it contain?
This web page includes the information produced when you are attended in any public healthcare centre: primary care centres (CAP), hospitals, laboratories, diagnostic imaging centres. These are the details contained in the shared clinical history in Catalonia:

It is a card that is used to express a wish to organs or tissues at the time of death, which commits the person, and can be removed at any time, for whatever reason, there is a change opinion. This area also contains the living will, if you have registered.
- Procedures Access to the Internet addresses from where you can carry out procedures.
- My monitoring Electronic services to monitor your health.
- Calendar An electronic calendar which includes any programmed appointments and tests you have pending in primary health care and, shortly, your appointments with specialists (as the healthcare centres add this information).
- Waiting lists The time you will have to wait if you have an operation pending which is included in the list of maximum guaranteed waiting times: hip and knee replacements, cataracts, heart or heart valve surgery or any of the 22 guaranteed oncological procedures.
- e-consultation Virtual space through which you can talk to healthcare professionals. This service is under development and is scheduled to arrive in 2017 50% of primary care centers in Catalonia.
- Communities First virtual space for community healthcare, with a pilot project under way in conjunction with the Catalan Institute of Oncology (ICO) in which breast-cancer patients can do sessions of psycho-oncology via the Internet.
It is anticipated that new services will be added very soon, such as the possibility of registering as an organ and tissue donor and accessing and contributing to your personal medical data, as well as new communities 2.0 between healthcare professionals and patients.
All of this personal information is securely and confidentially available on Cat@Salut La Meva Salut, the website that enables citizens to participate and take co-responsibility in prevention and the care of their own health.
