Our lives are scattered in multiple areas, and information that is important to us is sometimes in a filing cabinet, a kitchen drawer, or just plain lost. Wouldn’t it be great if you had all of your health information in one place? What if you could send your latest test results to any of your healthcare providers without having to call several offices or fill out complicated forms?
In recent months, Lakeland Regional has launched an exciting new service that will allow you to do all of those things and will change the way you share information with your doctors and healthcare providers. The Lakeland Regional Health Patient Portal offers many great features that will make your life simpler:
- It provides you with a global health record that will travel with you, regardless of where you live.
- It eliminates the need to dig through your files to find notes about your health history, or to call a former physician to transfer your record when you move out of town. You no longer have to rely on your memory for dates of important procedures or your list of medications.
- There’s no more waiting for your doctor’s office or healthcare provider to be open to request an appointment. You can view summaries of your hospital stays or clinic visits, and send messages to your healthcare providers.
Access to your health record is available from anywhere in the world 24 hours a day from your computer, tablet or smartphone. I encourage you to sign up for your Lakeland Regional Health Patient Portal and to take advantage of all the convenient features and tools that it offers. Become a part of the future of healthcare today! For more information or to register for your personal, secure account, visit www.myLRHPatientPortal.org.
