By Brady Shoemaker, Information Services Manager at Sheridan Memorial Hospital
Sheridan Memorial Hospital (SMH) is pleased to offer convenient, secure, online access to your personal health information through our patient portal: MySheridanHealth. Once enrolled, patients can easily access their medical information 24 hours a day via an app on their cell phone or via computer at sheridanhospital.org.
MySheridanHealth is available to all patients at no cost. Originally implemented at the hospital in 2014,over the last year our team has been working to optimize the portal to make even more information available to our patients.
Patients of SMH, and its affiliated clinics, including Big Horn Surgical; Ear, Nose & Throat; Heart Center; Internal Medicine, Rheumatology; and the Women’s Clinic, can view appointments, request medication refills, communicate with healthcare providers and much more from MySheridanHealth.
Many options are available to our patients to access their medical records, including viewing lab results, medication lists, allergies and immunization records. In today’s world, MySheridanHealth can even be considered a mobile COVID-19 Vaccination card. When you have a COVID-19 or influenza test through the hospital – those lab results are posted in the patient portal as soon as testing is completed.
Patients can review summaries of recent office or hospital visits, surgeries or procedures. For example, patients can easily view the dates, history and results of tests and procedures, including colonoscopy, mammography, x-rays, provider visits, and more.
Other conveniences of MySheridanHealth include communication with staff via secure messaging, requesting an appointment, conducting a scheduled video visit or appointment with a provider, accessing forms needed for an upcoming appointment, tracking health conditions and wellness goals, and much more.
Granting access to others
Under certain conditions, you may grant access to your MySheridanHealth account, as in the case of a caregiver needing access in order to manage a patient’s care. This would also apply to parents or legal guardians of children under the age of 18 or those who care for individuals with mental or physical impairments. Or if an individual gives their permission for another person to have access to their medical records.
Signing up for the patient portal is easy. We are offering online enrollment to the patient portal by visiting MySheridanHealth.org on the internet – Required information includes:
