My Medical Record evolves with a new look for patients
My Medical Record is a digital electronic patient record which is a secure website and gives the patient access to their personal health record. Over 50,000 UHS patients currently have access to this service.
Using this electronic record patients can check to see their personal details are correct, such as DOB, sex, address, phone number, email address and the patient can also add emergency contact details.
Using My Medical Record the patient can also check future hospital appointments.
"I find it straightforward to find my test results for my condition, and I use it as a resource – it saves a phone call. It is reassuring to have My Medical Record." IBD patient, John
The patient record is jointly managed by the patient and their care team. For example, patients can see clinic letters and can also request any changes to the letters if they want to.
A number of patients can also access further information about themselves, including various test results, such as blood tests. My Medical Record (MyMR) allows patients to keep in contact with their care team at the hospital, using the messaging system within the app.
It also allows patients to add information about their health which may be being monitored as part of their current treatment, such as their weight or blood pressure for example, without the need to travel into hospital.
