SCL Health Brings Convenience to Consumers with Online Access

DENVER (May 27, 2014) — Consumers use mobile devices and computers to do nearly everything these days. Now, for thousands of families in Colorado, Kansas and Montana, there is simple online access to personal health information as well.

Denver-based SCL Health, a faith-based nonprofit with eight hospitals, hundreds of doctors and 190 ambulatory service centers, is proud to offer MyChart, an online patient portal designed to provide convenient access to health information for consumers.

The new service is part of a larger investment in technology by SCL Health that includes a systemwide electronic medical record system and participation in Colorado’s statewide information exchange. These electronic tools help connect clinicians and consumers in a more meaningful and efficient way to manage their health.

“Our vision at SCL Health is to be a premier, person-centered health system,” said President and CEO Michael Slubowski. “That means we must not only provide superior clinical care, but convenience, customer service and connectivity, too. MyChart, along with our comprehensive electronic medical record system, helps us to empower our patients to partner with us in their care.”

MyChart’s features include web-based connectivity that enables patients or caregivers to:

  • See lab results and medical history.
  • Refill prescriptions.
  • Request an appointment with a physician or ask questions via email.

The number of features available through MyChart may vary based on location, the type of care received, and whether someone is accessing MyChart through a mobile device. A patient can learn what is specifically available to him or her by asking a local SCL Health provider.

“Facing a health issue is stressful,” said Dr. Rick Lopes, Senior Vice President of Health Networks for SCL Health. “By providing better access and connectivity, we strive to take away unnecessary worries and information delays so people can focus on what matters most: healing.”

About 10,000 patients have signed up for MyChart since it became available at SCL Health April 1. MyChart is available for patients of the following hospitals:

  • Saint Joseph Hospital (Denver, CO)
  • Lutheran Medical Center (Wheat Ridge, CO)
  • Good Samaritan Medical Center (Lafayette, CO)
  • St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center (Grand Junction, CO)
  • St. Francis Health (Topeka, KS)
  • Holy Rosary Healthcare (Miles City, MT)
  • St. James Healthcare (Butte, MT)
  • St. Vincent Healthcare (Billings, MT)

In addition, MyChart is available through dozens of SCL-affiliated clinics and ambulatory centers.
