Your Personal Health Record (PHR)
A PHR contains health information compiled and maintained by the patient. The myhealth.grh.org patient portal is a Web-based (online) service through which patients can communicate securely with their health care providers for routine communications, obtain laboratory and radiology test results, view statements, and pay bills online.
Managing Your Health Information
The health information that you are able to view using the MyHealth patient portal is pulled directly from your electronic medical record (EMR) maintained by Grande Ronde Hospital, Inc. Keep in mind, however, that an EMR and a PHR are not exactly the same thing. Although your PHR contains much of the same information as your EMR, you will maintain, update and control your PHR and share it with those you choose. GRH does not manage your MyHealth record.
The health information that you can enter, upload, view, and manage using MyHealth includes:
- Current health issues
- Preventive care reminders
- Past medical history
- Past surgical history
- Social history
Oregon law allows you to add minor dependents age 12 and under as family members, but Oregon law also mandates those records be severed when the minor reaches age 13.
Utilizing your MyHealth PHR to its fullest potential can improve the quality of your health care!
Managing Your Time
Diagnostic Test Results
With your MyHealth account, many laboratory and radiological diagnostic test results may be viewed by you in your MyHealth Record. If you are, or may be, a patient of Grande Ronde Hospital, you will need to add GRANDE RONDE HOSPITAL when you add providers to your account in order to include all Hospital-generated testing results into your record. Keep in mind that a small number of test results may not be viewable in compliance with state and federal law.
Scheduling Provider Appointments
Using MyHealth you can request appointments with providers who use the RelayHealth program utilized by MyHealth. All Grande Ronde Hospital providers are participants in MyHealth. There are also many providers from all over the world who participate in the RelayHealth platform used to power MyHealth. If you have a specialist in another city, for example, you may use the ZIP code search to look for that specialist.
Secure Messaging for Private Communication
MyHealth allows you to send and receive secure messages to your health care provider and receive a timely response.
Patient Account Information
MyHealth also allows you to view information about your patient financial accounts. You can view detailed online statements and pay all or a portion of any bill online. You can also view and update your address and phone numbers and view basic health insurance information.
