Recognized in Thomson Reuter’s Top 100 Hospitals in the US for 2011, Blanchard Valley Hospital takes great pride in doing their best to serve their patients as well as their community.
In an effort to continuously better their establishment, Blanchard Valley has recently implemented the Blanchard Valley Health System Patient Portal. As they say on their website, “All good things take time” and this is no exception, with bits and pieces of the system steadily becoming available.
The goal of this system is to provide patients and their families with controlled and private access to their personal health records and information online at any time and from almost any place. By developing this system, Blanchard Valley has avoided confusion, giving patients a one-stop system to not only access health records but to also:
• View and request appointments
• Securely contact their physician
• View and pay current medical bills
• Review test results
A patient of BVHS looking to create a Patient Portal account needs a medical record (obtained at any BVHS-owned medical practice), and an active email address. With these, all new patients at Blanchard Valley will have their accounts automatically set up for them.
In keeping with the times, the Patient Portal can be used from any computer with an internet connection, as well as on a smartphone, and, in order to ensure the utmost security, the portal has an automatic timeout after a 30-minute period of no activity.
