It is in the child’s best interests to enable the guardian to register their official dependent and use the OmaMehiläinen services on their behalf. However, it is important to note that the child’s information is confidential and even a guardian is not generally entitled to access the information of a child, even if the child is under the age of 12. The guardian is responsible for ensuring that they always use OmaMehiläinen on behalf of the child in a way that serves the child’s best interests.
According to section 9 of the Finnish Act on the Status and Rights of Patients (785/1992): “If a minor patient because of his/her age or level of development can decide on the treatment given to him/her, he/she has a right to forbid providing his/her guardian or other legal representative with information on his state of health and care.” Furthermore, according to section 7 of the act (Finnish Act on the Status and Rights of Patients, 785/1992): “The opinion of a minor patient on a treatment measure has to be assessed if it is possible with regard to his/her age or level of development. If a minor patient owing to his/her age and level of development can decide on the treatment given to him/her, he/she has to be cared in mutual understanding with him/her.”
The child has the option of asking an attending doctor to forbid displaying their patient information to a guardian in OmaMehiläinen, for example, whereupon the doctor will record the refusal after taking into consideration the age, level of development and health issue of the child. If a parent’s guardianship over the child ends, the parent is obligated to inform Mehiläinen of the matter, after which the parent will no longer be able to view the child’s information. Mehiläinen also has the right to use the automated verifications of the Population Register Centre to check the validity of the guardianship and, if necessary, forbid the display of the child’s information to anyone other than the official guardian. See also section 5 of the OmaMehiläinen terms and conditions: Minors’ registration and use of service.
According to section 9 of the Finnish Act on the Status and Rights of Patients (785/1992): “If a minor patient because of his/her age or level of development can decide on the treatment given to him/her, he/she has a right to forbid providing his/her guardian or other legal representative with information on his state of health and care.”
The explanatory memorandum of the legislation states that, in practice, nearly all children over 12 are mature enough to decide on the treatment given to them. In compliance with this statement, access to the child’s health information in the OmaMehiläinen service ends automatically when the child turns 12. In order to display the information of a child who is 12 or older to the guardians, the child must give their guardian specific consent to view their information in the Mehiläinen patient information system as well as the information entered into the service by the child in OmaMehiläinen. Children who are 12 or older may give their consent by signing a document at a Mehiläinen clinic, thereby allowing their official guardian to view and manage their health information. Both the child and the guardian must be present and able to prove their identity. Consent must be given separately to each parent, if desired. Consent given at the age of 12–14 will be valid until the child turns 15, after which the child may renew their consent in a similar manner or by registering in OmaMehiläinen using their personal online banking credentials and allowing their guardian to view and manage their health information. The consent will then be valid until the child turns 18, whereupon they are removed from the guardian’s family profile. Please note that the patient records of those between the ages 12 and 17 will not be displayed to the individual or in the family profile unless specifically allowed by the doctor.
Consent can be withdrawn at any time by signing a document at a clinic or, if the person is 15 or older, in the service by using online banking credentials. As the child’s OmaMehiläinen profile and information will be stored even if they are no longer included in the guardian’s family profile, the child may personally view and manage their information in OmaMehiläinen by logging in to the service using their personal online banking credentials. Please note that the right to view and manage a minor’s information can only be granted to their official guardian, unlike adults who may grant any person the right to view and manage their information. See also section 5 of the OmaMehiläinen terms and conditions: Minors’ registration and use of service.
Only the OmaMehiläinen users who are 18 or older can add people to their family profile. Minors can only be part of the family profile of their official guardian and manage the display of their information to their guardian.
The OmaMehiläinen online service uses strong identification with online banking credentials. Identification is connected to the person’s official identity, so a separate password is not set for the OmaMehiläinen online service. This means that the password cannot be changed.
You can add strong identification in your OmaMehiläinen application in the left navigation bar in the section “PROFILE“, “Bookings” and by activating “Allow booking online only strongly identified”.
You can terminate your OmaMehiläinen service agreement at the reception desk of a Mehiläinen clinic by signing the service agreement termination form. You will be required to prove your identity when terminating your agreement.
