Whether you are waiting on yearly blood work results, managing a chronic disease or just trying to keep your health information together, it can be difficult to manage follow-up calls and paper copies of your medical record.
In December, CAMC will open access to its PatientLink patient portal to allow patients 24/7 access to their health information in a secure site.
Individuals who have been patients at CAMC after March 2012 are eligible to access PatientLink.
Patients will be able to view several different documents to get an overall picture of their care at CAMC, including:
• Lab test results
• Medical imaging reports
• Summaries of hospital stays, including discharge and medication information
• Living will and medical power of attorney documents
By creating a PatientLink account, patients will be able to access information more quickly. Most results will be available within two days of the time of hospital discharge or outpatient testing.
In the future, PatientLink will also include CAMC Physicians Group practices. PatientLink will also connect with CAMC's online Health Information Center to provide general information about tests and procedures.
For more information, visit camc.org/PatientLink and watch for sign-up information in early December.
