Logging in to SystmOnline

If you are trying to use the SystmOnline service, you will be in one of the following situations:

1. You have a SystmOnline username and password

Enter your username and password on the SystmOnline login page and click Login.

If you have been granted online access to more than one organisation and/or more than one person then you will see the Choose Patient screen. Under the organisation you want to use click on the name of the person to choose that account.

You will then see the SystmOnline Home page, which shows your details and your healthcare organisation’s contact details at the top.

Note: The online services available here will depend on the services your healthcare organisation has decided to offer; therefore, not all of those listed in this guide may be available to you.

You can navigate to all the online services from the Home page. To return to it, click Home in the blue menu bar.

2. You have an account ID, passphrase and organisation code

Go to the SystmOnline login page and click Sign up. (You will only be able to sign up if your GP practice holds a verified email address for you)

You will then see the Sign up page, fill in all of the fields and click Sign up.

You will be sent emails containing your SystmOnline username and a temporary password.

3. You have no login information

You will need to go to your registered healthcare organisation to request a SystmOnline username and password. Consider calling the service in advance to find out what kind of identification you will need to take with you, e.g. a driving licence.

If you wish to register as a new patient at the healthcare organisation you should click on the Register with link.

This option will not register you for Online Services; it will take you to a registration form.

Third party linked accounts

Note: SystmOnline does not currently link with any third parties.

To reset third party linked accounts or re-issue a passphrase you will need your Account ID and Organisation Code. When logged into SystmOnline you can find these in Online Account Management under Account Information.

This is the information you will use to log on to HSCIC approved third party patient facing services applications. Your passphrase (third party passphrase), is another type of password and is not displayed for security reasons. If you have forgotten your passphrase, you can either contact your healthcare provider directly or use the Re-Issue Third Party Passphrase on the Login page.

Reset Third Party Linked Accounts

Resetting your linked accounts will remove your access to SystmOnline and any other third party online services you currently have access to. If you choose to reset your accounts, you will be prevented from logging on to SystmOnline or any other third party patient facing applications and will not be able to manage your care online.

After resetting your online account, if you decide you need access to online services you will need to re-register at your healthcare organisation.

Re-Issue Third Party Passphrase

If you have forgotten your passphrase, you can use the Re-Issue Third Party Passphrase on the Login page.

You will need to enter the required Account Information, including the organisation code of the healthcare service you wish to use online services for (they can give you this information). Once you have entered this information and pressed “Re-issue passphrase” your new passphrase will be emailed to your verified email address.
