A national patient portal for secure communication between the patients/citizens and primary care (Mina vårdkontakter) is available in Sweden. This system was used in a pilot project in the Stockholm County where patients were invited to prepare the visit to their physician for the discussion on the need for prolonged sickness leave by filling out a web based questionnaire on their current health status and working conditions. The opinions of the patients and their primary care physicians about the system were analyzed with positive feedback.
