ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) -- Sentara RMH has created an easier way to access your health records.
The new patient portal, which was launched last month, puts more of your health information at your fingertips. This gives you, as a patient, access to important health information from home.
Available information includes when your next appointment is or what medications you were given during your last visit.
David Hylton with Sentara RMH said one of the most useful tools in the portal is being able to grant family members access to your records.
"We've had several cases of patients who are far away in distance, and are able to access their parent's information and feel a little more connected in managing their health care," said Hylton.
This secure online access is being implemented across the Valley.
