Patient Portal Upgrade Gives PeaceHealth Patients Personal Experience

Eugene, OR - PeaceHealth has upgraded its state-of-the-art patient portal, allowing patients to see their own records and interact with their provider’s clinic remotely, 24/7.

PeaceHealth was one of the first health care systems in the country to offer a patient portal in the mid-1990s. More than 11,000 patients in Eugene/Springfield and Cottage Grove use the existing portal, called PatientConnection.

The new version of the software, made possible by a recent upgrade in PeaceHealth’s electronic health record system, will create an enhanced user-friendly experience, offering patients many popular features, such as:

  • Send a secure message to your doctor (replies typically within 1 to 3 business days).
  • View a summary of and recommendations from your last visit.
  • Directly schedule a primary-care appointment.
  • View results of lab or other tests.
  • View allergies or medications.
  • A mobile app for smartphones.

 

In addition, online bill pay is expected to be available this summer. Like the previous portal, the new PatientConnection is free and available to existing PeaceHealth patients. It requires only a personal email address and access to an Internet-enabled device.

“We look forward to the difference that our new electronic health record system and patient portal will make for patients and staff alike,” said Henry Veldman, regional vice president of operations for PeaceHealth Medical Group. Continue>
