Trinity makes health info available

STEUBENVILLE – Officials at Trinity Health System recently unveiled a new and innovative service that will benefit everyone in the area, according to officials.

My Trinity Health is a patient portal that will allow an individual to view his or her health records online. According to Keith Murdock, Trinity spokesman, “We are very excited to offer this service to the region. Anyone who has received services at Trinity Health System can now access these records in a secure and convenient environment.”

My Trinity Health can be accessed from Trinity’s home page, and, once an individual has activated his or her account, lab results, radiologic exam reports, discharge instructions and a health summary can be reviewed at the individual’s convenience. The information is generated by Trinity’s Electronic Health Record, which ensures that the information is accurate and up to date. The site can be accessed through a home computer, tablet or smartphone any time of day.

“Our ability to offer this service is due to the proactive measures Trinity has taken to develop the EHR. Trinity has been far ahead of the curve in this government-mandated program and is one of the first health systems in the area to provide a patient portal,” Murdock added.

To self-enroll an account, one must have an e-mail address registered with Trinity Health System and know their medical record number. If an individual is an inpatient at Trinity, he or she will receive assistance with enrolling during the stay.
