The HCA Midwest Health patient portal allows users to access personal health information and share it with health care providers. Users can also print a medication list from the patient portal, explains HCA Midwest Health.
Through the patient portal, users can view information that health care providers have entered such as lab results, radiology reports and upcoming appointments, notes HCA Midwest Health. Users can also view any allergies or conditions that providers have entered, as well as discharge instructions and summaries. Users can view hospital visit histories and lab results through the portal as well.
To use the patient portal, a user must be at least 18 years of age, according to HCA Midwest Health. Users can allow spouses or other authorized representatives to access the portal by completing a proxy consent form. Users are notified via email alert when a provider enters new information into the patient portal.
To enroll in the patient portal, a user must enter the patient information he received at registration, including his email address and medical record, or user, number. To complete enrollment, users must open the patient portal log-in email, click the link in the email, and enter temporary credentials, reports HCA Midwest Health. Users then complete the self-enrollment questionnaire. Finally, users should log out and back into the patient portal with the newly created credentials.
