North Oaks Health System’s patients can access their health records on any computer or smartphone by using myCHART — a secure, online medical record patient portal, a news release from North Oaks said.

Patients will need a personal activation code to set up an account at mychart.northoaks.org. Patients, ages 18 and older, can use myCHART to view lab results, medication lists, discharge summaries, upcoming appointments and more. Registration is easy, the release said. Activation codes are available on the “After Visit Summary” form patients receive at North Oaks Physician Group clinic appointments or when they are discharged from North Oaks Medical Center or North Oaks Rehabilitation Hospital. Patients who use doctors affiliated with North Oaks Physician Group also may request an access code in person at any clinic in the network by showing a photo ID, the release said.

“It’s a huge benefit to be able to access your health information any time of the day or night, at home or on the go,” said Dr. Herbert Robinson, North Oaks vice president and chief medical information officer. “MyCHART makes it easier for patients to stay connected and better manage their health care.”

North Oaks’ myCHART is powered by Epic, an international health care technology firm specializing in electronic health record technology. North Oaks implemented EHR technology systemwide in March 2013.
