Sirius Care is a secure online patient portal that provides you with access to your own personal health information.
Sirius Care is developed by Pegasus Health and Intrahealth, and used by General Practices that are using the Sirius Electronic Medical Record system.
Sirius Care provides simple access to your health information that is held on the Electronic Medical Record system of your General Practice. You are the only person who can access the information that is released onto the Sirius Care patient portal, using your Sirius Care username and password.
Pegasus Health and your General Practice take the privacy of all health information very seriously. Your health information will be managed in line with the Privacy Act 1993 and Health Information Privacy Code 1994. A copy of the Health Information Privacy Statement is available from your General Practice. View our Privacy Statement.
View the Terms and Conditions of using Sirius Care. These Terms and Conditions form an agreement between you and your General Practice.
Sirius Care uses the latest internet protection technology to ensure access to a patient’s information is secure and protected.
An audit trail can show who has accessed your record, to help ensure health information is seen only by the patient or their care team.
Patient portals act in a similar way to online banking services, providing you secure access to your own personal information. We recommend keeping your username and password confidential.
The Ministry of Health also provides helpful information around the use of patient portals.
