Discovery HealthID is South Africa's first and most extensive digital healthcare platform for doctors. It enables them to access their patients' electronic health records through an iPad or a computer. HealthID provides doctors with a more complete view of patients' medical history and test results. This ensures better integration and coordination of healthcare, reduces the likelihood of serious medical errors and duplication or unnecessary tests. Give your doctor consent to view your health records.
MyBreastCancerRisk is an interactive calculator that will calculate an estimated risk of you developing breast cancer based on a set of specific questions you answer about your personal health and family history.
Once you complete the assessment and have calculated your risk, your medical scheme may provide further screening benefits though the Screening and Prevention Benefit, where clinically appropriate. This will enable you and your doctor to put together an appropriate screening plan.
Family history history is an important part of any person's health information. MyFamilyHistory makes it easy for you to record your family health history. The information you provide will be used to assess your risk of developing certain common or hereditary health conditions at some time in your life.
