According to a story that appeared on nzherald.co.nz Hastings Health Centre has experienced a surge in patients signing up to ManageMyHealth patient portal.
Hastings Health Centre chief executive Andrew Lesperance said he expected numbers to keep increasing as more people adapted to using technology as a new way of engaging in healthcare services.
The Manage My Health online portal and app enables patients to book appointments, request repeat prescriptions, view laboratory results and access health records from a computer or device. Prior to the level 4 lockdown, about a third of Hastings Health Centre’s 32,000 enrolled patients had signed up to Manage My Health.
“We want to encourage more people to register. We’re seeing patients, from young adults through to the older people signing up.
“We’ve even had a 94-year-old patient, who uses the Manage My Health’s phone app, tell our team how easy it is.”
Lesperance added: “We want people to stay as connected as possible with their GPs and family health teams and we are doing this by making access to our online portal as simple as possible.”
