WestCare Health has announced the WestCare Patient Portal launching July 1 which will provide patients with online access to portions of their electronic health record. Through the WestCare Patient Portal, patients will be able to access their lab and imaging test results, medication information, and recent health history.
The WestCare Patient Portal will be readily available to inpatients upon discharge from the hospital and outpatients upon completing their test or procedure following a simple registration process. WestCare staff members are in place to provide education to patients and families about the West- Care Patient Portal and will be available to assist with portal registration immediately after a patient’s hospital stay.
As part of the Affordable Care Act, hospitals around the country are required to provide patients with online access to health information.
