Your Medical Record
Why are certain test results not shared electronically via FollowMyHealth?
Your provider is able to determine which types of test results are able to be accessed through FollowMyHealth. Further, tests of a very sensitive nature are not released to FollowMyHealth.
If some of my health information on FollowMyHealth is not correct, what should I do?
Your FollowMyHealth information comes directly from your electronic medical record at your doctor's office. Ask your doctor to correct any inaccurate information at your next office visit. Your health information is reviewed and updated in your electronic medical record each visit.
FollowMyHealth For My Family
Can I view a family member's health record in FollowMyHealth?
Yes you can. This is called Proxy access and allows a parent (or guardian) to log into their personal FollowMyHealth account, and then connect to information regarding their family member.
Can my spouse and I share one FollowMyHealth account?
No, due to the sensitive nature of medical information, each adult must sign and submit a Release of Information request and establish their own FollowMyHealth account.
