With MEDITECH, Interior Health Reaches Patient Engagement Milestone

 | 

Interior Health (Kelowna, BC) was recently recognized as the first health authority in British Columbia to provide patients with online access to their health records.

The organization is helping patients to take charge of their care with secure, 24-hour access to MEDITECH’s Patient and Consumer Health Portal (also known as MyHealthPortal). It is currently available for patients of Shuswap Lake General Hospital (Salmon Arm, BC), and will eventually be rolled out to the more than 700,000 patients across Interior Health.

“Interior Health is primarily rural, and MyHealthPortal allows the connectedness we have between health care providers to be accessed by patients,” noted Norma Malanowich, vice president and CIO for Interior, in The Ashcroft Cache Creek Journal article.
