Maybe I’m being a bit thick… it’s about sharing medical docs with a consultant during a teleconsultation via Doctolib, set up by the consultant. They have sent an email with instructions to join the rdv so there is no problem with that.
But it seemed like a Doctolib account would be needed. But now I’m confused. The account doesn’t appear to know about the rdv, and it seems to want you to upload medical documents to it.
I thought all the medical info in MonEspaceSanté can already be accessed by consultants/doctors etc, if you have allowed it.
To add to that - Doctolib is a private company and whereas the individual consultants may well have access to your records, Doctolib doesn’t unless you specifically upload them. I did that once but have now stopped.
Many thanks for your comment Angela. We hesitated about uploading docs because it’s a huge pain, and everything is already in MonEspaceSante. It didn’t seem to make sense. Looks rather like Doctolib is trying a take-over of something that already works. We’re just anxious to make sure the consultation works out OK.
Thanks Graham, but to read it I have to subscribe to The Local…
I just logged into Mon Espace Santé, don’t know why I didn’t think of that before, and that seems to me to be the official record, not Doctolib at all.
With my last 2 consultations, the doctors concerned wanted to see any documents I had - prescriptions, referral letter and the like, and took no notice of anything that might have been on Doctolib. I would recommend taking paper copies of everything you can think of - as per usual
No, not large file sizes. Around 500kb and in pdf format from our scanner. Never had a problem with my DMP but this new site just will not accept any new documents from me. Just says that there is a ‘technical issue’ and to try again later. Been like that for three months or more.
@Robert_Hodge If it has been going on for that long I would send them a message for their technical team. Note: The Messagerie is just for communicating with health professionals.
Login, Click on ‘Aide & Contact’ at the bottom of the Accueil page.
Click on the box ‘Nous Contacter’ and fill in the contact form for technical help. Perhaps choose ‘mes documents’ as the ‘Motif de contact’. Then write your message.
Good luck. Keep us posted.
and from Vanessa tells me, there used to be an issue uploading our documents to the DMP site but that has diminished since the new site started.
Sometimes these things are relative to your internet connection. Slight interruptions otherwise unnoticed when reading content but significant when uploading documents can play a part in causing issues.
Seems like the problem is at my end then. Perhaps it’s Ghostery running some sort of interference. When I have a bit of time I shall see if I can turn off Ghostery in relation to the specific website and give it another go.
I did contact the Assurance Maladie over the issue who advised me to phone them so that they could talk me through the procedure, as though it may be the case that I’m not pressing the right buttons in the right order, which I know is not the case.
