The purpose of the Health Profile is to make the citizen more aware of his own illness,
and potentially increase the quality of the collaboration between
the practitioner and the citizen.
It can, for example, happen by making the citizen aware of signs of incipient pneumonia,
so that he/she can go to the doctor and the inflammation can be treated
at home before hospitalization becomes necessary.
The health profile - as part of 'The patient as a partner'
- works a lot to meet the citizens' perceived needs.
