Last Wednesday, June 19 , The Medical City (TMC) launched a service that no other hospital offer. They launched today an innovative service that provides its patient-partners with easy and secure access to their medical records via the Internet, free –of-charge.

They call it the “TMC Partner Link”. It is an online facility that lets you check your lab an radiology diagnostic results, discharge summaries wherever you are.


It also features various health trackers that enable patients to monitor their vital signs via a graphic interface. 

“For now, we have trackers for blood pressure, heart rate, blood sugar and weight,” says Dr. Mike Muin, Health IT Head of The Medical City. 

“What’s unique about these trackers is that they are integrated with our hospital Electronic Medical Records, and allow doctors to monitor their patients without frequent hospital visits. It fully embraces the concept of patient partnership beyond the walls of the hospital.” TMC Partner Link however does not provide medical advice, so patients should still consult their doctors for proper interpretation of the diagnostics and symptoms.

Security
In order to protect sensitive medical records and personal information from unauthorized access, the portal uses a strict identification verification and authentication procedure. In addition, all data is stored in the secure clinical data repository of The Medical City.

TMC Partner Link is accessible via The Medical City’s main website (http://www.themedicalcity.com)

Patients admitted starting June 24, 2013 will be offered the facility as part of standard admission procedures. Outpatients of the Ambulatory Service Center may be enrolled similarly. Alternatively, those who have transacted with TMC before this date can visit, call or email TMC’s Customer Service Department to sign up for a Partner Link account.


The launch of the TMC Partner Link is in connection with its celebration of “Innovation Week.” Throughout the week, the “Innovation Fair” at the TMC Lobby will showcase a wide range of technologies, services and products developed by TMC’s various clinical and administrative departments.

“Harnessing the power of information technology, we are able to establish closer and more meaningful connections with our patient-partners. Moving forward, the service will continue to be enhanced, and we will introduce more and more features responsive to their needs,” says Dr. Alfredo R.A. Bengzon, M.D., M.B.A., President and Chief Executive Officer of The Medical City.
