The Cures Act is a recently enacted federal law intended to improve every patient’s access to their own medical record. The Cures Act calls for a person’s health data to be made available without delay on a secure patient portal.
As a patient of Ohio ENT and Allergy Physicians, you can securely view your medical record, health history, limited lab and imaging results using our InteliChart Patient Portal. The Cures Act requests the following types of visit notes performed at Ohio ENT and Allergy Physicians to be published as soon as they are signed by your provider:
Many labs and hospitals send results directly to you through their own patient portals. Because of this, you may see sensitive lab or imaging results before the clinic or your provider has reviewed them and contacted you.
Some lab and imaging reports may not be viewable in the portal because they were not provided to us in an electronic format. If you are unable to find a lab or imaging report that you are looking for please contact our office.
Documents in your chart from outside sources, such as notes from your primary care provider and other referring physicians, are not published through the portal. You can get those documents directly from the provider who previously saw you.
Phone messages are not part of the core data set defined by the Cures Act and are also not published.
Ohio ENT and Allergy Physicians is pleased to do our part to improve patient access to health records. If you have any questions, please contact your doctor’s office directly.
