ETMC hospital patients can access summary of care through MyETMC Web portal
Patients who complete an inpatient or observation stay at any ETMC acute care hospital can access an online summary of care for their stay through the MyETMC Web portal, MyETMC.org.
The summary of care includes discharge medications, allergies, lab test results, problem lists, vital signs and discharge information, and is available for patients admitted to any acute care ETMC hospital on or after July 9. (Information on behavioral health and long-term acute care patients is not included in the portal at this time.)
"MyETMC provides a snapshot of the clinical care during the patient's stay at an ETMC hospital. It is not a complete copy of all the patient's health information. However, it can be invaluable information, if the patient needs follow-up care with another provider or at another facility," said Carroll Rogé, chief operating officer for FirstNet, a health information exchange which powers the portal.
The summary of care for each hospital stay is available online to patients within 36 hours of discharge. MyETMC.org is free, secure, easy to use and available 24/7.
"We recognize that health information must be protected," Rogé said. "Our systems are encrypted to ensure that your records remain private. We protect user names and passwords, and we encourage patients to do the same. MyETMC is fully compliant with federal and state laws regarding privacy."
MyETMC.org is home to three portals:
•MyETMC HOSPITALS allows inpatients and observation patients access to a summary of care for each acute care hospital stay.
•MyETMC CLINICS allows ETMC First Physicians patients to view lab results, request appointments, refill prescriptions and securely message their provider.
•MyETMC HOSPITAL BILL PAY allows hospital patients to pay their bill securely online.
