My health record
UHS has worked with the Microsoft HealthVault platform to create My health record™ - a link between health services and a patient owned record.
My health record™ will allow patients to use a single login to access any service capable of connecting to the HealthVault platform.
This unique concept does not require individual organisations to have their own store of information for the patient held record, as this data will be held by the patient in their HealthVault account. Patients can choose who to share their information with, whether that be family members or other health organisations.
UHS will use this connection to provide a better service, giving patients more control over their healthcare and care plans. It will also contribute to the remote management of many conditions, cutting out unnecessary visits to the hospital.
My health record™ will enable better management of conditions by:
allowing patients to co-manage their healthcare online
reducing the need for hospital visits
24/7 support and information
no need to adjust work or family arrangements
allowing patients to cancel and re-book appointments online
facilitating online consultations
capturing pre-assessment data before patients visit our hospitals
helping patients and clinicians to share information online.
We are currently running a pilot of the website with patients from our inflammatory bowel disease and maternity diabetes services. Unfortunately, you will not be able to sign up to this service unless you are invited to and this will typically happen at outpatient clinic appointments.
