When it comes to your health, you want to be as involved and informed as possible. Altru’s MyHealth gives you easy access to your health care—right at your fingertips. Here are six reasons to sign up for MyHealth:
1. You have direct access to your provider. MyHealth’s messaging option allows you to send a private message to your provider’s office. With proxy access, you also have access to the provider(s) your child, parent or spouse sees. Maybe you have a quick question about a minor rash? You don’t know if it’s necessary to make an appointment. Skip the phone call and send a message via MyHealth.
2. You can do it all. Beyond messaging your provider’s office, you can also see vaccination records, view test results, request prescription renewals, review growth charts, manage appointments, review and pay bills and more.
3. It’s at your fingertips—literally. Access MyHealth on the go with the MyChart app, available for both iPhone and Droid. Once you’ve activated your account on a computer, go to your smartphone app store and search: MyChart. There will only be one. Select install (it’s free). Once the app has downloaded, scroll through and select your location: Altru Health System.
4. It’s paperless. With MyHealth, your electronic medical record is tucked away in one convenient location, minus the paper clutter. Need a vaccination record for daycare or school? Simply log in and print. Avoid the file-digging frenzy.
5. It’s free. This service is available to all Altru patients free of charge. Stay informed and be an active participant in your health care, without spending a dime.
6. It’s available 24/7. Questions pop up around the clock. While messages are responded to during office hours, you can always send your non-urgent questions as you think of them—even if it’s 3 a.m. Manage your health when it’s most convenient for you.
Staying informed and playing an active role in your health care can help you lead a healthier life. Put your health (and your family’s health) in your own hands. Activate your MyHealth account.
