Take a More Active Role in Managing Your Health and Wellness

October 14, 2013

When it comes to managing your health and wellness, you want to be in the driver’s seat. Thanks to the new patient portal from North Ohio Heart | Ohio Medical Group, you can do just that. With FollowMyHealth, you can become your own biggest health advocate as you gain anywhere, anytime access to your personal health records. We understand you might have some questions, so we’ll do our best to answer them.

Why should I bother using FollowMyHealth?

Yes, the new patient portal provides easy access to your health records, but the benefits don’t stop there. You can also view test and lab results, send secure messages to your physicians, request prescription refills and request an appointment.

I can do all of those things without FollowMyHealth. What’s in it for me?

Using the patient portal to manage your health and wellness will save you time, as each necessary task can be completed on your watch without having to deal with phone conversations or being put on hold. You can access FollowMyHealth 24 hours a day, seven days a week from your computer or mobile device. Plus, the system is secure and ensures your privacy is a top priority. On top of all of that, you’ll also have access to apps and tools that make tracking your health and progress easy and informative.

Okay, but is my medical information really secure?

Yes. FollowMyHealth complies with federal patient privacy regulations, so you have nothing to worry about. Any information that is transmitted or stored through the system is encrypted for your protection. Your secure login operates under the same industry standard as the logins for online marketplaces or financial institutions.

So, how do I sign up?

There are a couple of avenues you can follow to sign up for your FollowMyHealth account.

  1. Stop by the front desk of any North Ohio Heart | Ohio Medical Group office with your driver’s license and email address. You’ll then receive an email with three easy-to-follow steps.
  2. Visit the website and follow the steps to create a new account or activate your account if you’ve already received your patient activation code. You can choose an existing personal ID through Facebook, Google, Yahoo, or Windows Live to sign in, or create a new Google account if you don’t have one already.

And that’s it! Congratulations on taking an active role in your own health management!
