For River Falls Area Hospital & River Falls Medical Clinic patients, MyChart and IQ Health make managing your health easy

RIVER FALLS, Wis. 10/14/2013

Many patients of the River Falls Area Hospital and River Falls Medical Clinic are starting to manager their health care information online—anywhere, anytime.

MyChart is a secure, online health management tool that connects Allina Health - River Falls Area Hospital's patients to their personalized health information regarding their hospital stay, and clinic information if they doctor at an Allina Medical clinic. The IQ Health portal is the secure, online health management tool for patients of the River Falls Medical Clinic to access clinical records online.

The hospital and clinic are encouraging current and past patients of the hospital and clinic to take advantage of this free tool to improve their health. Both online health management tools are completely secure, making sure your health information stays a private matter between you and your care providers. And your information is available 24/7.

Understanding and remembering all the information you need to know after being discharged from a hospital after surgery, delivery or illness can be confusing; and can impact whether or not you have to return to the hospital for additional care. MyChart provides that needed online access once you get home to view the reason for your hospital visit, diet, activity, wound- and self-care instructions, equipment needed, signs and symptoms that indicate a worsening in your condition and whom to call, and more.

For Allina Health hospital patients, MyChart allows you to:

  • review your record of medications, immunizations and allergies, and selected lab test results
  • review after-visit summaries from your hospital care team (discharge instructions)
  • pay hospital bills
  • read about health education topics

For River Falls Medical Clinic patients, IQ Health makes it easy to:

  • Ask your doctor and care team a question via secure email
  • Ask a specific question about your last visit
  • Request an appointment
  • Access your clinical records including medications, allergies, immunizations, limited lab results and surgeries & procedures

It's easy to open your free MyChart and IQ Health account, whether you want to access your health information on your home personal computer, your Android smartphone or tablet, or on your Apple iPhone®, iPod touch® or iPad®. Just go to allinahealth.org/mychart and follow the simple instructions to open your MyChart account; and go to www.rfmc.org, click on the 'sign up for patient portal' to complete the IQ Health registration form.

While physicians and care providers have access to both healthcare systems, it is important to sign up for both systems because they are separate electronic medical record systems.
