Why the change to a new Patient Portal?
As electronic medical records advanced over the years, the advantages of having a single electronic health record (EHR) throughout Estes Park Health became clear. After a careful and thorough search, it was decided that UCHealth’s instance of Epic would serve our patients and providers best. Many of our patients also see healthcare providers at UCHealth and seamless access to clinical charts at both Estes Park Health and UCHealth will improve quality of and continuity of care for our patients. It is important to remember that while we will be sharing our EHR system with UCHealth, we are and will remain an independent organization.
You can continue to use Follow My Health Patient Portal until November 8, 2019
After November 9, 2019, we will no longer be using the Follow My Health portal. After November 9, you will need to sign up for My Health Connection. This may seem confusing because My Health Connection will be UCHealth branded. The branding is not what is important, what is important is that your electronic health record will now be accessible to all providers and systems on the Epic system worldwide.
Why should I enroll in My Health Connection?
Patients are encouraged to sign up for UCHealth’s My Health Connection, the patient portal that allows patients access to their medical record. Visit www.uchealth.org/myhealthconnection for enrollment instructions. All documentation for services after May 5, 2018, can be found in UCHealth’s My Health Connection.
In addition to reviewing medical information, including medications, immunizations, allergies and medical history, patients can:
- Make appointment requests and receive appointment reminders
- Renew and refill prescriptions.
- Receive lab and test results online.
- Communicate with your provider via e-mail.
After November 9th, our current patient portal, Follow My Health, will no longer be updated with new health data. Please sign up for My Health Connection. We are sure that you will appreciate the new features and improved usability.
There’s an app for that.
Take your medical record with you, thanks to the UCHealth App. The app integrates with My Health Connection to give you more ways to track and interact with your health, including access to your medical record and test results, health news, healthy recipes and exercises, and inspirational patient stories. The UCHealth App is available from the Google Play Store for Android devices (version 5.0 or higher), and via the iTunes store for iPhones (iOS9 or higher) – search “UCHealth.”
