Loyola University Health System is allowing patients to see test results, communicate with their doctors and make appointments online.
The online health connection, called myLoyola Select, is free and has apps for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
The free service enables a patient to:
— View a health summary and schedules of preventive care recommendations.
— Send a non-urgent message to a doctor’s office and receive a reply over a secure line.
— Make an appointment.
— View summaries of past appointments.
— View test results. The doctor can release test results after reviewing them. Some results are released automatically.
“We take great care to ensure our patients’ health information is kept private and secure,” said Arthur Krumrey, vice president and chief information officer.
“Loyola will add new capabilities in 2011, such as access to patient education materials and receiving, viewing and paying bills online.”
