All records and information can be printed directly from your my health care account. If you require any information that is not available to you in the portal, please reach out to your hospital’s health records department.

One of the benefits of my health care is having access to results and reports as soon as they are complete.

Many patients say they prefer to see their results and reports as soon as they are ready. But, if you do decide to see them right away, remember:

• Your healthcare team will review your results and reports and let you know if they need to see you before your next scheduled appointment

• You may have questions or concerns about the information in your results and reports. Only your physician has the training to explain your results. The other staff at the clinics or areas you visit are not able to discuss your results. Your physician will answer your questions at your next appointment

 

Please note: Choosing to see your results as soon as they are ready could mean you see a confusing, unexpected, or worrisome result before you have a chance to meet with your healthcare team.

Real-time notifications are sent directly to you. my health care is connected to your health record. If you have your notifications turned on, when tests, labs and reports are ready, you will get a message via email or a notification on your phone, that they are available. It is likely that you will be able to see your results before your healthcare team as they are reviewing results for many patients.

Your results and any questions you may have about them will be reviewed with you at your next appointment. If your results are medically urgent, someone from your healthcare team will contact you. Your healthcare team is there to support you so that you fully understand the results.

Unless otherwise directed, please wait for your referring physician to call you about your report or any results. Please do not call the hospital switchboard, lab or diagnostic technician listed on the report – they will not be able to connect you with the physician or answer your medical questions.

Medical information from April 1, 2022, forward can be viewed in my health care. Visit history prior to April 1, 2022 is viewable but no health information regarding those visits is accessible. If you would like to obtain copies of any information prior to April 1, 2022, please reach out to the health records department at the hospital where the visit occurred.
