The Medical City has embraced the world wide web as part of their patient-partners programs. Starting with an easy and secure access to their medical records via the Internet, free –of-charge. The Partner Link is available at The Medical City in celebration of Medical City’s Innovation Week.
The patient-partner website or the Partner Link aims to give patients the power to monitor their results and to keep an eye of their health records.
“Harnessing the power of information technology, we are able to establish closer and more meaningful connections with our patient-partners. Moving forward, the service will continue to be enhanced, and we will introduce more and more features responsive to their needs,” says Dr. Alfredo R.A. Bengzon, M.D., M.B.A., President and Chief Executive Officer of The Medical City.
I am not good with keeping health records, as soon I my doctor read it and results were given, I just place them somewhere and be forgotten or just throw it away. Having a database where you can just simply browse them when you need it would be very handy. Doctors can immediately check on your medical records and history if needed.
Patients admitted starting June 24, 2013 will be offered the facility as part of standard admission procedures. Once registered you can now have access your medical records online. Your lab test results will be up online in seconds. You don’t have to go back to The Medical City for the result, it will be available online.
Outpatients of the Ambulatory Service Center may be enrolled similarly. Alternatively, those who have transacted with TMC before this date can visit, call or email TMC’s Customer Service Department to sign up for a Partner Link account.
“For now, we have trackers for blood pressure, heart rate, blood sugar and weight,” says Dr. Mike Muin, Health IT Head of The Medical City. “What’s unique about these trackers is that they are integrated with our hospital Electronic Medical Records, and allow doctors to monitor their patients without frequent hospital visits. It fully embraces the concept of patient partnership beyond the walls of the hospital.”
Rest assured that all the privacy of your medical records are secured, all data is stored in the secure clinical data repository of The Medical City and the Partner Link uses a strict identification verification and authentication procedure.
