ALBUQUERQUE – June 3, 2015 – Lovelace Health System have announced the launch of MyLovelaceMedicalGroup.com, a patient portal that allows all Lovelace Medical Group patients to access their personal health information.
The portal, which was launched May 13 to patients at Lovelace Medical Group, was built on a platform developed by NextGen Health. Once a patient has signed up, they can use the secure website to access data from their medical record, including lab results, immunizations, medications list, allergies, and vitals. They can also request an appointment and get driving directions to clinics.
As part of a long-term plan, MyLovelaceMedicalGroup.com will expand to include secure communications capabilities between patients and providers, as well as the ability to fill out certain forms before an appointment.
“This is really about getting patients more engaged in their healthcare, and giving them more control,” said Rebecca Gallegos, MSN, Director of Quality for Lovelace Medical Group. “There are a lot of resources in the portal for medical information, too, so if a patient has a question about an issue, they can find a more reliable answer in the portal than what they’d find by doing a simple internet search.”
The site is currently being supported via email by Lovelace Health Systems IT staffers. In addition, Lovelace Medical Group has trained leads in clinics across the coverage area to on-site questions or respond to email requests regardless of location.
