We know how busy you are. Between work meetings, the kids’ sports schedules and trying to have a social life, you can barely remember your zip code some days, much less your next doctor’s appointment.
That’s why we’ve made it easy for you. With our FollowMyHealth patient portal, all your important health information is at your fingertips from a computer or smartphone. You can access it anytime, anywhere, whether you’re at home or running from one meeting to the next.
The portal is a secure, interactive site that puts you in control of your health. All personal information is encrypted to maintain your privacy.
Here are 5 ways you could be using it right now.
#1 - Managing Prescriptions
See what your current medications are and why they’ve been prescribed to you. When it’s time for a refill, you can easily request one through the patient portal without having to call the doctor’s office.
#2 - Managing Appointments
No more leaving messages or waiting to call during normal business hours to schedule your next visit. When it’s time to make your next appointment, you can schedule it immediately by logging into the patient portal. You can also have reminders sent directly to your phone by text message so you’ll never miss another appointment.
#3 - View Test Results
Did you have lab work done recently? The patient portal allows you to view your results as soon as they’re available, rather than waiting for them to arrive by mail or calling in to check the status. Plus, your results are conveniently stored for you so you can refer back to them later. If you’re trying to lower your cholesterol levels, you can compare results from year to year to check your progress. Not sure what all the numbers mean? Check out our handy guide to decoding your lab results.
#4 - Check Records
Can’t remember whether all your children have had their tetanus shots? What about the date of your last visit? By logging into the patient portal, you’ll find the answer fast. Your medical records are all stored in one place, so you’ll never have to track down dates again. It makes filling out those insurance forms that much easier!
#5 - Ask Your Physician A Question
Did you forget to ask your doctor something that’s been on your mind since before your last visit? Ease your anxiety by getting answers. The patient portal gives you a convenient way to communicate directly with your doctor, rather than worrying about what could be wrong.
The patient portal allows you to take more ownership of your health by gaining a better understanding of what’s going on.
You can sign up at the front desk of your physician’s office or go to the website, partnersforyourhealth.com, to get started now.
