Beginning today, patients who have an inpatient or observation patient stay at KVH Hospital will be able to access a summary of their care online through a patient portal. Most surgical outpatients will also be able to access a summary of their care.
Providing patients access to their information electronically is one of many requirements of hospitals across the nation in order to successfully meet the second stage of federal government guidelines for the meaningful use of electronic health records. KVH Hospital successfully met the first stage of these federal guidelines in 2013.
Inpatients, observation patients, and surgical outpatients who choose to use the patient portal will have electronic access to information about their visit after they are discharged from the hospital. Information available will include their diagnoses and discharge instructions.
