MOBILE MEDICINE: Online patient portal takes health care everywhere
MyChart on a mobile phone.
(12/22/14) — All ECU Physicians clinics are now offering patients access to their own electronic health records through a secure online patient portal called MyChart.
Once enrolled, patients can use any computer, tablet or smartphone with Internet access to securely view their test results or appointment notes, send non-urgent messages to their health care providers, request medication refills or appointments and review their active problem or medication list.
“MyChart allows patients to stay connected to their providers and to get better control of their own health,” said Dr. Tommy Ellis, chief medical information officer for ECU Physicians. “It’s a safe, easy, convenient way for patients and their families to keep tabs on all aspects of their health care. Everything’s all in one place, up-to-date and at their fingertips all the time, no matter where they are.”
