A project team is coming to Vernon to offer patients access to personal health information online.
MyHealthPortal provides patients with 24-hour access to their health information via their smart phone, tablet or computer through a portal from the Interior Health website. Features include the ability to view IH lab results, diagnostic imaging reports, certain upcoming appointments and recent hospital visit history.
The enrolment team will be at Vernon Jubilee Hospital and the Vernon Downtown Lab (Sterling Centre) from Jan. 9 to 20, Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
To sign up, patients must present to the project team in person with legal photo identification and their Care Card or B.C. Services Card in order to verify their identity. They will be given a login username and password that they will be able to use on their own device — home computer, tablet or smart phone. Then they go to the MyHealthPortal page on Interior Health’s web site at www.interiorhealth.ca/MyHealthPortal to login.
For those unable to attend in person during this enrolment period, remote enrolment will be available after Jan. 9. To enrol remotely, patients must show their identification at the registration desk and ask to have their e-mail address added to their patient record. They can then submit an enrolment request at www.interiorhealth.ca/MyHealthPortal.
