Talk about convenience. Imagine being able to have a blood test taken in Giant Eagle before you do your banking, shop for groceries, and play the lottery. Then when you get home you have the ability to log-on to a website to access your medical information on demand. Beginning Friday, June 1, people who receive medical care at Healthy Directions in the Finleyville Giant Eagle can access their personal health information — anytime.
Healthy Directions is introducing a Personal Patient Portal — an online application that enables patients to securely exchange information with their certified registered nurse practitioners (CRNPs) and medical assistants (MAs) through the Internet. The confidential site helps patients:
- complete intake forms before their arrival for faster registration
- manage their personal health record
- review lab and diagnostic reports
- view summaries of their visits
- communicate with Healthy Directions’ professional medical staff regarding non-urgent medical matters
“Since people are more health conscious today, they are taking active roles in managing their health care,” said Conni Miller, R.N., B.S.N. director of operations for Healthy Directions. “Our Patient Portal is a great resource for keeping health records and information up-to-date.”
The medical staff at Healthy Directions provides convenient, walk-in treatment for common non-urgent illnesses as well as health physicals. CRNPs see patients every day of the week including weekends. Lab hours are Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday from 7 a.m. to noon. For more information, visit mvhhealthydirections.com or call 724-348-6699.
When people visit Healthy Directions for evaluations, diagnosis, physicals, immunizations or lab tests, they can ask a member of the staff to give them access to the Personal Patient Portal. Anyone who has received medical care previously from the professionals at the Finleyville Giant Eagle can call Healthy Directions for private access at 724-348-6699.
