Employees’ use of My Health at Vanderbilt encouragedJun. 21, 2018, 8:36 AM
Vanderbilt University Medical Center employees who are also patients are encouraged to enroll in My Health at Vanderbilt (MHAV), the online portal for Vanderbilt Health.
Leaders with Vanderbilt Health want to increase enrollment in MHAV, and point to its many advantages for patients, including VUMC employees who are also patients.
Those advantages include:
- Interacting with electronic medical records
- Communicating securely with members of health care teams
- Refilling prescriptions easily
MHAV was upgraded Nov. 2, 2017, with the launch of eStar.
“Having a robust infrastructure for patient engagement brings important strategic advantages,” said Trent Rosenbloom, MD, MPH, associate professor of Biomedical Informatics, Medicine and Pediatrics and director of MHAV.
“At Vanderbilt, we understand that patient-engaging technologies improve the quality of care, improve the efficiency of health care delivery, provide a substantial competitive advantage, improve bill-pay and allow other technologies to plug in, such as tele-health solutions,” Rosenbloom added.
“The main message to our patients about My Health at Vanderbilt is that it’s now much easier to sign up,” said Brian Carlson, director of Patient Experience.
