Sierra Vista and Twin Cities offer online medical records access
Patients at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center in San Luis Obispo and Twin Cities Community Hospital in Templeton are now able to access some of their health information online, the hospitals announced Tuesday.
The My Health Rec patient portal provides access to medical records, including lab results, through home computers and smart devices.
The two hospitals, both units of Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare, said the portal is a secure, Web-based tool that allows patients to view, download and electronically transmit medical information to their doctors. The program initially will be available only to inpatients, and parents of minors will be able to enroll their children and access their accounts.
Sierra Vista and Twin Cities first implemented electronic health records in 2011 in response to the national call to enhance America’s healthcare. My Health Rec is a continuation of those efforts.
