The Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum announced the launch of the Louisiana Health Information Exchange Patient Portal, a secure online website that provides patients with 24-hour access to their personal health information.

In order to access the portal, their health care provider must be actively participating in the Health Information Exchange and subscribed to the service. LaHIE is the state’s electronic health system that allows authorized doctors to view and share patient data through a secure system.

Patients must register with their doctors to gain access to the portal. Once registered, they will be able to review their personal health information using a username and password. Only information stored by participating LaHIE providers will be available through the portal. For more information, go to http://www.lhcqf.org/for-consumers/lahie
