If you’ve ever been hospitalized at Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC), you’re eligible to subscribe to CareConnect, a secure, confidential and convenient way to access your health records online.
“With CareConnect, YRMC is giving you access to your health information anywhere you have an Internet connection,” said Dee Betts, YRMC’s Director of Health Information Management (HIM). “If you’re traveling and have a medical emergency, CareConnect gives you access to your health record. If you want to check the results of recent blood work, CareConnect gives you access to your health record. This is your health information available to you when you need it.”
CareConnect is a valuable and convenient source of information for YRMC patients that includes:
- Clinical summaries or discharge documents from all YRMC visits (Emergency Department, inpatient and observation)
- Laboratory results
- Immunization records
- Medication history
- Allergy information
- Health issues being treated
- Complete list of visits to YRMC
- Upcoming appointments at YRMC
“CareConnect helps YRMC patients make informed healthcare decisions,” said Michelle Henson, Supervisor of YRMC’s HIM department. “It gives people access to much of the same high-quality healthcare information available to their caregivers.”
People hospitalized after June 11, 2012 – when YRMC’s electronic medical record (EMR) was introduced – may access their health record information through CareConnect. However, anyone who has ever been hospitalized at YRMC is encouraged to set up a CareConnect account in order to begin building their secure online health record.
Creating a CareConnect account is simple and takes approximately 10 minutes. To set up an account contact:
