Notifications about previous home visits

When a home visit has been made, you can receive notifications by e-mail or text message. If you are a next of kin of someone who receives home healthcare services, you can easily keep track of the support services they receive at home.

This is done as follows:

  1. Both the next of kin and the person receiving the home healthcare services must have logged in and consented to the terms of use.
  2. The next of kin must have power of attorney to represent the person receiving the services at helsenorge.no. This power of attorney must cover at least Digitale helsetjenester (Digital healthcare services).
  3. The next of kin must enter their notification set-up at helsenorge.no and state that they wish to receive notifications concerning completed visits. This is done as follows:
    • Click on your name in the top right-hand corner of the screen when you are logged in and select Kontaktinformasjon og varseloppsett (Contact details and notification set-up) in the Profil og innstillinger (Profile and settings) menu.
    • Under Hvilken type varslinger vil du ha? (What type of notifications do you wish to receive?), select Alle varsler (All notifications).
    • Check the box under Vil du ha samme varsler for andre du representerer? (Do you wish to receive the same notifications for other people you represent?)
