Horizon Health Care Now Providing Patients Online Services
My Horizon Chart allows patients to view their health information online, anytime
With its launch of a new patient portal program this month, called “My Horizon Chart,” Horizon now offers patients the option to access select portions of their health records online, through Horizon’s website.
My Horizon Chart allows patients to more conveniently view, manage, transmit and download certain health records such as lab test results, immunizations, procedures, allergies and prescribed medications. The portal also enables users to view recent test results more quickly, send secure messages to your provider, check your account balance and share medical information with physicians instantaneously, at any hour and wherever internet access is available.
“My Horizon Chart signifies an important step towards improving patients’ healthcare experiences,” said Horizon’s CEO John Mengenhausen. “This program reflects Horizon’s ongoing commitment to advancing technology and providing all of our patients with enhanced access to, and ownership of, their personal health care information.”
Patients with a valid email address can begin to use the secure, web-based tool starting this March by registering for a secure patient portal account during their appointments or stopping into the clinic when it is convenient for you. Upon registration, My Horizon Chart provides a secure username and password to access patient record information. Parents will also be able to enroll their children 11 and under and access their accounts.
“With this next step, patients can review their prescriptions and health records on their tablets, send secure messages to their providers and check their account balance with the click of the mouse,” said Mengenhausen. “We are proud to offer the technology and accessibility that make healthcare easier for our patients anytime, anywhere.”
