RNZCGP releases guide to use of patient portals for kids

The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) has developed a guide for members to assist them with the legalities of providing health information to children, adolescents and their parents through a patient portal.

The college released a general guide in 2015 to using patient portals covering what sort of information should be and can be disclosed, but the new guide focuses on the differing legal considerations GPs need to take into account when releasing information to a child or to their parents.
