myNJHealtheRecords: A New and Better Way to Manage Personal Health Information

There are many reasons patients need quick, secure online access to their health care records and medical history: when visiting a new doctor, reviewing recent lab results, managing care for an elderly parent, or during an emergency. Providing patients with secure access to their health care data through a patient portal has become crucial to quality care.

Using a patient portal can cause confusion and frustration. Patients create multiple accounts because they visit multiple providers and clinics. Often times this means patients are likely to have several patient portals with user names and passwords to login to access medical information from each provider. For New Jersey patients, however, there is a new option; one which allows patients to access and control their personal health records in one place – myNJHealtheRecords. OneHealth New Jersey and the Medical Society of New Jersey provide myNJHealtheRecords as a one-stop site for personal health care information.

OneHealth New Jersey, the state’s physician-led health information exchange (HIE), encourages the use of the myNJHealtheRecords patient portal to manage health records on everything from diagnosis, to treatment, to medications and allergies, to previous illnesses and injuries. OneHealth New Jersey supports patient engagement by electronically transmitting medical records available in the HIE to patients who have an established myNJHealtheRecords patient portal account. For a patient this means they will have access to health care data made available from participating providers in the HIE.

Other valuable components for patients include online medical record access, secure messaging, tracking of critical health information such as weight and blood pressure, secure maintenance of important documents, up-to-date health information and education, and new health information alerts. myNJHealtheRecords is certified by the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) and meets all of the Meaningful Use and Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) requirements.
