CMH Offers Patient Portal Training for Public

Marysville, KS – Community Memorial Healthcare (CMH) is offering an instructional class entitled ‘Accessing the Patient Portal: a training session for CMH patients.’ The class will introduce individuals to the web based patient portal, and provide hands-on instruction on how patients can set up a secure personal account and view inpatient hospital records – such as allergies, immunizations, lab results, medication lists, and discharge instructions. Patients who want to be better advocates of their own health are invited to attend the free class.

Two classes are being offered: Tuesday, August 19, 2014 from 5:30-7:30 PM; and Wednesday, August 27, 2014 from 5:30 – 7:30 PM. Both classes will be held in the CMH South Plaza Training Room, located at 18th & Jenkins Streets. Please use the South Plaza main (north) entrance. Please bring your laptop, IPad or tablet if you prefer. CMH will have computers set up for patient use as well. Colleen Behrens, Director of Information Technology (IT), Sara Ramirez, and Jill Ryan, Discharge Planner, will serve as instructors.

“The health-care industry is moving more toward patient-centered information and is offering patients the opportunity to access their own health information in a way that is most convenient
for them,” said Colleen Behrens, IT Director. She added, “CMH wants to partner with our patients to provide expert guidance and tools for them to take an active role in their health care.”
