Mercy Health is connecting to the national My Health Record system.
What is My Health Record?
My Health Record is a secure online summary of a person’s health information. My Health Record enables patients to manage their health information securely, in one place. It also allows health providers to access timely information about their patients at the point of care.
Mercy Health is preparing to participate in the My Health Record system
In early 2020, Mercy Health will be connecting to the national My Health Record system to enable our clinicians to upload and view their patients’ health information at the point of care.
Mercy Health will upload inpatient electronic discharge summaries, pathology and radiology imaging results to a patient’s My Health Record (where one exists).
You can choose who has access to your My Health Record. You can remove or control who can see your uploaded patient information by logging into your My Health Record and changing access controls. You can also choose to have a record or to permanently delete it, at any time in your life.
You can also ask Mercy Health not to upload some documents. If you have not changed the access controls in your My Health Record you will need to do this each time you are provided care.
How will My Health Record benefit me?
