Through this secure, web-based network, healthcare providers at more than 300 care sites in 53 Pennsylvania counties can securely share your medical information electronically. For a complete list of providers, visit www.KeyHIE.org.
Q. What portion of my medical record will I be able to view online?
A. In addition to the medical information that you upload, Holy Spirit will begin automatically uploading clinical information from your hospitalization to your MyKeyCare as early as July 2014. Doctors’ office visit information will be available later this fall.
Q. Can I allow a trusted family member to access MyKeyCare for me?
A. With your consent, family members may access your MyKeyCare account.
Q. Is my medical information secure and private?
A. Yes. The same patient confidentiality guidelines that apply to your paper records also apply to your online health information. In addition, your online information is encrypted and password-protected.
Q. I receive all of my care in one place, so why do I need this?
A. Unforeseen situations, such as health emergencies, may require you to be seen by a doctor or nurse outside of your area. The Universal Authorization ensures that your health information is available to participating doctors and nurses who are caring for you.
Q. What is a Universal Authorization?
A. When you sign our Universal Authorization, you are allowing the doctors and nurses who care for you at participating doctors’ offices, hospitals and emergency rooms to access your healthcare information. This ensures that you get the best, most efficient care possible.
