For the management of their disease chronic patients are alternately dependent on the care of the general practitioner, (specialized) nurses or the specialist. For optimally coordinated communication there is a strong need for one single patient record containing all necessary medical information in order to get a complete overview of the condition of the patient for all healthcare providers. In this feasibility study we demonstrated that using current methods for data security and encryption over the Internet an electronic patient record could be employed to be used by only those care providers that have legitimate access to the data. The data security and encryption technology can also be used to employ various other registries not necessary requiring the same level of security.
