Frequently Asked Questions and Account Issues
Effective 2/27/17, patients can view lab results through the portal, once your physician has reviewed and approved them for posting. (This will impact lab results received February 27, 2017 and after.) Please allow a little time for labs to become available to you; the turn-around-time should within a few days of your labs being collected, depending on the type of lab result (some tests take longer than others to process). Click the My Health tab, and then the Results tab. Locate the lab work you’re interested in seeing the results of under the Value or Range columns. You may also be able to view details of your lab results by clicking on the document icon under the Options column.

CAN I INVITE SOMEONE ELSE (A SPOUSE, ADULT CHILD, CAREGIVER) TO BE A PROXY ON MY BEHALF OR PROVIDE ACCESS TO MY ACCOUNT INFORMATION?
With FollowMyHealth, any adult can grant another adult access to his or her account. Your spouse or loved one needs to log into FollowMyHealth and go to Preferences under “My Account” in the top right corner of the page. Choose “Invite a Proxy” and follow the steps. You may grant others either read-only access or full access, which allows your proxy to interact on your behalf including making appointments and messaging your physicians.
To request a connection to more than one healthcare organization, log in to your established portal account, and in the top right corner, click My Account > Connections > Add Connection.

Finally, accept the Release of Information. You will receive an email notification as soon as your health record data is available.
