WICHITA –Wesley Healthcare today unveiled its My HealthOne patient portal, a powerful new tool for patients that provides secure, online access to data from hospital electronic records.
The new portal is designed to simplify and streamline a patients’ experience with Wesley facilities, and empower patients and their loved one to have more control and flexibility in how they manage their care.
“My HealthOne empowers patients and caregivers and provides a vehicle for communication and engagement,” said Karla Mowdy, Wesley Healthcare director of advanced clinicals.
Also accessible via smart phone and mobile devices, patients can view their health information, lab results, medications, medication instructions, radiology reports, class registrations and upcoming appointments from anywhere with internet access. Patients can also download and print this information so it is readily available for scheduled appointments or when supporting a loved one’s care.
“Our hope is that this is as much a benefit to our caregivers as it is to our patients,” said Dr. Francie Ekengren, MD, Wesley’s chief medical officer. “It will certainly improve communication among hospital, patients and their physicians.
“Plus, an engaged, informed patient is more likely to be a compliant patient. And compliant patients are more likely to have positive outcomes – and that’s what we’re all really after.”
My HealthOne replaces Wesley’s previous patient portal – the MEDITECH patient portal. Patients who wish to view their patient portal account can visit www.wesleymc.com/patient-portal. New users will be directed to a page that informs the patient that Wesley has upgraded its portal and lets them know they must create a new account with My HealthOne. Information about the portal is available at all Wesley facilities and at discharge.
