How You Can Manage Your Child's Health Anytime
January 02, 2018
Accessible from any computer, tablet or smartphone, the University Hospitals MyUHCare Personal Health Record (PHR) allows you to receive lab and radiology results, email a doctor, refill a prescription, request or change appointments and so much more – all from the comfort of home or on the go, available 24/7.
Rena Williamson has been using her MyUHCare PHR for a couple of years.
“I really do love that you don’t have to make requests of the doctor’s office and feel like a bother," she says. "A lot of information can be found there.”
Now, using the MyUHCare PHR is a true family affair for the Williamsons.
“My husband and I use it on the desktop and on the phone," she says. "I used it in a doctor’s office to look at results and for reference purposes.”
Ms. Williamson also has set up a Parent/Guardian Access Account to view her daughter’s health information.
“For my daughter, I have viewed test results, set up appointments and received appointment reminders,” she says.
Ms. Williamson, who has a background in science, likes data and the ability to view her test results.
“It’s really nice to be able to see test results," she says. "You’re not just left wondering where in the normal range the result was.”
Ms. Williamson also finds receiving appointment reminders to be really helpful. She looks forward to further PHR features and compatibility with her mobile device.
“I love its use and can’t wait to see how it grows," she says. "It’s very helpful in the digital age.”
