Conshohocken, PA (February 7, 2014) – The Mercy Health System has launched the MyHealth Patient Portal, which allows patients to sign up to easily and safely access their health information from a computer or tablet. Encompassing Mercy Fitzgerald, Mercy Philadelphia, Nazareth and Mercy Suburban hospitals, MyHealth empowers adults to view their own health information 24/7 from the comfort of home.
MyHealth is a secure and encrypted website containing each patient’s personalized hospital-based health information from Mercy Health System’s hospitals, including transcribed reports, lab results, medical history from past Mercy Hospital stays, information about nurses, doctors and healthcare providers, and educational information about medical conditions.
“Mercy is committed to providing increased access to health information and delivering person-centered care,” said Kathryn Conallen, Senior Vice President & CEO, Acute Care Operations. “MyHealth allows our patients to become better informed about their health and promotes health information at any time, day or night.”
MyHealth allows patients at Mercy Fitzgerald, Mercy Philadelphia, Nazareth and Mercy Suburban hospitals to:
- View Test Results and Reports – Patients can access lab and radiology results from a stay at one of the Mercy Hospitals up to 96 hours after the test is completed.
- Access Their Medical History – Patients can view ordered medications, immunizations, allergies, immunizations, their diagnosis and healthcare providers who treated them at the hospital.
- Search the knowledgebase – Patients can find educational information on a diagnosis or a result provided by MedlinePlus, which is published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM).
Patients can sign up for secure access to their medical records with their email address during the hospital registration process. Mercy Health System’s MyHealth is available at www.mercyhealth.org/myhealthportal.
