Welcome to HealtheConnection. A Better Way to Healthcare.
HealtheConnection is for patients, physicians and hospitals. This online portal will save you time and money, and help providers offer more efficient and coordinated care.
Imagine walking into a doctor’s office for your first visit. The receptionist checks you in and asks you to have a seat, but there’s less paperwork to fill out than usual—because you already gave them access to your personal health information.
When you meet with the doctor, she tells you she would normally order lab tests, but she doesn’t need to this time. Even though you had lab tests done at a different office two weeks ago, she can instantly see the results.
The doctor refers you to a specialist in a different office across town, but you don’t have to wait for the records to be faxed – because you give your doctor permission to share your records with the specialist with just a click of a mouse. The staff tells you that if you have any questions when you get home, even after regular office hours, you can log in to your online patient portal and within 72 hours, see the results from your visit. Have a question about something in your portal? No worries! Just send a secure message to your physician's office and they’ll respond back via a secure message to your portal. That was easy!
You just saved time and money, and also received better, more coordinated care.
See your lab test results.
Most providers try to post results within 72 hours at a minimum; however, some results may take longer to appear. Depending on your provider’s capabilities and any legal restrictions around sensitive results, some results may not be immediately released to the portal.
Please ask your provider’s office to find out which results they release and how long it takes to post them.
