About my Patient Access
As access to and delivery of healthcare gets more challenging, Canadians are calling for better ways of managing their health and their health information. They want simple, efficient approaches in a secure environment that respects their privacy.
my Patient Access was developed out of this need.
my Patient Access is a simple, convenient and secure online approach to managing your health information, your way, 24/7. It offers you instant online access to your personal health record, your physician’s appointment schedule and other healthcare-management tools. With my Patient Access, you will be able to manage your health information better and engage in more productive discussions with your physician about your health.
my Patient Access is available to patients whose physicians use the Canadian Patient Access ehealth system.
Basic services, such as scheduling appointments with your physician, eAlerts and electronic appointment reminders, are complimentary. Enhanced services, such as accessing lab results, requesting refill reminders and communicating with your physician online, are available through an annual subscription, which you can pay either online or directly to your physician’s office or clinic. Physicians offering my Patient Access to their patients have customized plans that will best fit your needs.
