More patients are accessing their health info online, as enrolment in MyHealthPortal continues to grow.

With more than 24,000 patients enrolled since the service was introduced a year ago, and a new automated registration system now launched, use of Interior Health’s MyHealth- Portal tool continues to grow.

The self-enrol, patients must still show their identification at the registration desk and ask to have their email address added to their patient record. They can then submit an enrolment form directly at www.interiorhealth. ca/MyHealthPortal.

MyHealthPortal offers secure 24-hour access to personal health information via a patient’s smart phone, tablet or computer. Features include the ability to view their Interior Health lab results, diagnostic imaging reports (such as X-rays, scans and ultrasound), certain upcoming appointments, recent hospital visit history, and the opportunity to update address and phone number information.

The enrolment team wrapped up in July this year after travelling to 26 communities across the health authority to promote the program and enrol patients.

For more information visit www.interiorhealth.ca/My-HealthPortal or call 1-844-870- 4756. Interior Health is committed to promoting healthy lifestyles and providing a wide range of quality health-care services to more than 740,000 people living across B.C.’s vast interior.
