WMHS Patient Portal

In August, WMHS will introduce the ability of patients to access their medical information through our newly created patient portal.  Once you register and your account is activated, you will be able to directly access information in your medical record, including test results and a host of other information online through our website.  We will first rollout the opportunity to register to our employees, but once we are sure that the portal is working properly, we will allow all of our patients to register.   You, as well as any family member that you give permission, can access your information at any time once you register and authorization is provided.  Knowing that such information is readily available, patients will be able to make faster, more informed decisions related to their care or the care of a family member.  Although all hospitals will be required to allow such access to your medical information in the future, WMHS is well ahead of hospitals in this area.
