Online medical records access now available at MCH
March 7, 2014
In an effort to provide patients the most comprehensive access to their medical records, Madison County Hospital has implemented OSUMyChart, an online tool offered through The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center (OSUWMC).
"We are pleased to offer the community such an integral feature within the expanding technological landscape," said Dana Engle, CEO. "Time is important to our patients and OSUMyChart offers a convenient approach to medical records access."
Last April, MCH partnered with OSUWMC to begin using IHIS, the Integrated Healthcare Information System. This system follows patients through their continuum of care. OSUMyChart is an extension of IHIS and is accessible for patients who have received care at MCH or OSUWMC.
Patients at both health systems are encouraged to participate in their care by using OSUMyChart. Through OSUMyChart, patients can communicate with their providers and access released medical records in a secure portal. They can also receive upcoming appointment reminders and view their preventative care history.
"The advantage of OSUMyChart is the increased patient understanding and involvement of their care here at MCH", said Russ Hessler, Director of Medical Records.
OSUMyChart is also accessible from a mobile device. The mobile application does not include the same information as the web-based OSUMyChart, but still allows patients the ability to view test results, send messages, review appointments and check health summary information. The MyChart app by Epic can be downloaded for free in app stores.
MCH has been a proud member of the OSU/Mount Carmel Health Alliance since 1999. Over the last 14 years, the partnership with theses systems has allowed MCH to provide quality healthcare in Madison County and the surrounding communities. Through the Alliance, MCH offers numerous healthcare resources and improved access to specialized medical services. OSUMyChart is a welcome addition to our growing amount of quality healthcare resources.
For more information on OSUMyChart, or to determine eligibility, please call 740-845-7102, Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Information can also be found on the MCH website, www.madisoncountyhospital.org.
