Easier access

Mobile app, online patient portal provide information to Trinity patients

Trinity Health patients have more access to their health information and medical providers through digital technology – a  mobile app and the online patient portal.

Mary Muhlbradt, a spokeswoman for Trinity Health in Minot, said the patient portal was activated in mid-2014 and the app about a year later.

The Trinity Mobile App is adapted for iPhone and Android devices. It gives mobile-device users a tool to connect with Trinity services and providers with just a tap of the finger, according to Trinity information.

Trinity officials said the mobile platform makes it easy for people to access their healthcare information and other resources wherever they are.

The app was produced by the Trinity IT Department in partnership with Network Center, Inc.

With the app people can:

– Search for a provider or office location.

– Gain access to contact numbers for specialists and pharmacies.

– Access the MyTrinity Health eConnect Patient Portal, where patients can review information contained in their medical record, request prescription refills, communicate with members of their care team in secure messaging, etc.

– View Trinity’s online nursery Baby Bytes.

The online patient portal gives patients secure internet access to their health information.

People can access the portal through Trinity’s main website trinityhealth.org, according to Trinity information.

Launch of the portal begins with a registration process inviting patients to register for an account in person and establish a secure username and password. The “in person” registration process is necessary so the ID can be verified.

Once registered, people can view their health information including lab results, medications, immunizations and allergies. Patients also can communicate with their caregivers as well as request appointments and prescription renewals.

Trinity Health adopted its electronic record in 2006.
