NIH: Patient Portal sign-i[s available at the Tri-County Fair

NIH Patient Portal sign-ups available at 2015 Tri-County Fair

If you are looking for a convenient way to access your personal health record, Northern Inyo Hospital has the answer.

Volunteers from the hospital’s staff will help people sign up for the hospital’s new online Patient Portal program during the Tri-County Fair, Sept. 3-6. The volunteers will be located on the south side of The Charles Brown Auditorium.

Anyone who has spent the night in the hospital or who is a patient of The Rural Health Clinic, or the orthopedic, women’s and pediatric clinics may sign up for the Patient Portal. Once signed up, patients have an easy and convenient way to view test results, and clinic patients can request appointments and communicate with their health care team via secured messages.

The portal’s biggest benefit is that it gives participants the ability to view portions of their records online for free. They may also print copies of their records at home at no charge. This reduces the need for most trips to the hospital’s Medical Records department where people are charged for personal copies of their records.

“Plus this gives them access to their records after hours, and on weekends and holidays,” explains Cyndee Kiddoo, Health Information Management Services (HIMS) manager.

Hospital Administrator Victoria Alexander-Lane said the Patient Portal technology is the wave of the future. “The portal technology allows our patients to take steps to manage their own care,” Alexander-Lane said. “Going forward we’re going to see more and more mobile health tools that emphasize wellness and really insert health care into people’s lives.” To sign-up, participants must have an active email address.

The sign-up process will be kept short during the Fair. Hospital volunteers will ask participants to fill out a brief sheet of information. Within a week, participants will receive an email with a personal invitation to the Patient Portal’s secure sign-up area.

Anyone having trouble signing in may contact Cyndee Kiddoo for assistance at (760) 872-2152, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, or after hours by email at Cyndee.Kiddoo@NIH.org.

In addition to the Patient Portal information, the NIH fair booth will have information on the hospital’s reduced cost services and new healthcare providers including Drs. Marty Kim, Louisa Salisbury and Allison Robinson.

Northern Inyo Hospital is a 25-bed, not-for-profit Critical Access Hospital located in Bishop. Accredited by The Joint Commission, NIH has been providing health care to the Eastern Sierra since 1946.
