Getting patients to sign up for MyChart, the Epic patient portal, is an important part of our quality and patient engagement efforts. This online portal gives patients easy and secure access to their health information (and helps reduce some of the administrative tasks handled by telephone in the offices). The features include:
- Managing appointments, including scheduling radiology tests or follow-up visits.
- Viewing discharge instructions and test results, such as lab work and results from mammograms and radiology tests.
- Communication between patients and EHPN office for non-urgent questions, including requesting prescription refills for refillable medications.
Have you yourself signed up? For providers to more effectively “sell” MyChart to patients, it helps to have experience using it as a patient. To sign up or for more information, visit mychart.englewoodhealth.org.
