National Health System

Area of e-government: e-health

Available since 2016, this platform provides access to a wide range of information and services online, made available by the institutions that integrate the Portuguese National Health System and other institutions of the Ministry of Health.

The portal allows, among other functions:

  • Consultation/download of diverse health indicators;
  • Accessing geo-referenced information about health providers;
  • Making online medical appointments and requesting renewal of medical prescriptions;
  • Accessing didactic materials on Health

The National Health System Portal includes the National Health System Transparency Portal, which centralises the data produced by the health care entities in a digital and accessible platform, so that this information can be analysed and reused without any restriction by the general population.
